This little bug is about a centimetre long and the little fly is about 3mm long.

Taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 with the 60mm macro lens, up close and personal, and edited in Lightroom. Handheld, as usual, and taken when I got up early for my Dewy Gemstones shoot.

Is it just me, or does that leaf look like a really weird tongue?!

  1. A great collection of images, Desley. The littlest bugs can sometimes be the most interesting to photograph! And yes, that leaf really does looks like tongue. 🙂 I keep intending to get up early and photograph but the only times I’ve managed to be awake, the weather has been foul!

  2. Ewwww…I don’t like bugs, but I love your shots of bugs. And I’m sitting here laughing at your tongue comment because it surely does! I love my 60 mm Canon Macro lens. I actually used it for some portrait photography. They are very versatile lenses 🙂

      1. I used my nifty fifty for the first shoot I tried. They just didn’t have the sharpness and clarity as when I used the Macro lens. The model I worked with had perfect skin which made it easier 🙂

        1. Gotta love pre-made soft focus skin 😉
          Actually I use a micro 4/3 camera so the 60mm macro on mine is 120mm equivalent. And therefore my 45mm portrait is 90mm equivalent. They’re both beautiful for portrait. The 60 is a stunner but the 45 lets me get closer. 😉


I'd love to hear from you!
