Nikon D800 Macro: Hover and Damselfly

July 29, 2013 Leave a comment

I went out in the garden today to see how well the D800 would perform in macro photography, the most obvious benefit for me was the high iso capability enabling me to shoot at a small aperture combined with fast shutterspeed.
Shot at 1/1000s – it’s obvious how fast the hoverfly beats its wings.

while I find hoverflies pretty boring to shoot – damselflies are the very opposite; bright and coloured.

I am not very fond of shooting macro – don’t get me wrong I love good macro shots but I find it frustrating. Kudos to you with patience enough to enjoy it :)

Shooting without a tripod or flash in they rainy breeze can be tricky – but patience is a virtue.

OK after a few weeks of trial-and-error shooting  – I now surrender to the fantastic world of macro-photography :) – It’s tricky but rewarding.

I take a wild stab in the dark and guess that this insect is of the Pentatomidae family (further help would be appreciated).
