[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Friends.
Personal circumstances have left me very little time to afford to TN. In fact I have not been writing any critiques or posting any shots all through this past week. I did find some time for some 'prowling' and was actually very surprised to find this bug at this time of the year. Not that many inssects around so it made my day.
Shot was taken in bright daylight and with the help of the tripod [one leg only extended]. Fill flash to help maintain an acceptable shutter speed and f11 to get best possible DOF from the Raynox.
Unfortunately I have not been able to find any information about it so any help in that respect would be warmly appreciated.
Thanks for watching and happy new year to all.
