"Male GBS from today"



This one perched above my head so I got a slightly different angle and was able to get close enough for this uncropped shot.

Well, probably not as well done as I'd like.

Haven't been out shooting in a while, and coming back to it recently, it seems my pics are looking a little back-focused. Since I manually focus everything, I'm thinking my eyeglass prescription has changed!

Thanks very much, Kathy. I remember focusing this shot and thought I had it sharpest on the eye. After posting it here and examining a little closer, I saw the sharpest parts of the bug were elsewhere. I've noticed this with a lot of the things I've photographed recently, so something has changed. I'm thinking it must be my eyesight.

>Well done Wasil?

The question mark was a typo Wasil. Tried to edit but saw it too late.

I figured it was a typo John so was just playing along for a little fun. But I was serious about my eyes. I think shooting animal subjects in this photography genre requires certain physical qualities and I'm a little bummed that I seem to be losing some of these with time. Maybe a body with live view would help? Perhaps I can get my Dr. to write me a prescription for a new dslr...

Regards,

Wasil

I have the D800 now with LV and it does help. I have LV on my D300 too but I found it much too cumbersome to use in the field. On the D800 (and I guess other current Nikons) it's one touch on and off and you're shooting MUP.

Great idea. Maybe you could file a health insurance claim arguing that it's necessary to preserve your sanity

Great info on the D300 live view vs. D800. Thanks.

Thanks, John. I used my Sigma 180mm lens on this, ISO 400, shutter 1/200 because it was a handheld shot (using a tripod makes me miss most photo opportunites with animal subjects). I'll have to look up the file to see what aperture, but I'm thinking somewhere between f/14 to f/16. I usuallly use flash dialed down to a fraction of TTL output to fill in shadows.

Regards,

Wasil
