[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today I would like to present...

Myrmeleon - larva. This time to the photograph I didn't use lens turned away - pancolar. I made photographs with lens canon 100 f/2.8 mm. What important - the photograph wasn't sharpened in photoshop. It is practically straight from a camera. I only lightly corrected the contrast of the photograph.

Dear Pawel
Very interesting photo of the Myrmeleon lava.

I had to google it and found Larvae dig a shallow pit in loose sand to trap prey...

Your photographic technique is impeccable and the presentation perfect.

I like - as you described in your notes - the "natural state" of your work; too much 'photoshopping' is done by too many members...

I wish you a nice evening

Czesc Pawel!

Zawsze chcialem sfotografowac, albo chociaz zobaczyc mrowkolwa, ale na razie nie mialem szczescia. Kolejne piekne makro, tym razem z troche wiekszej odleglosci. Swietne szczegoly i pustynny nastroj.

Hello Pawel,
Fantastic "MACRO" (In uppercase, because this a GREAT focus work). In other hand, what a scaring bug!... Well done, very interesting. TFS, Regards. Jesús

Hi Pawel,
Excellent shot. I cannot capture such small insect with my Canon EF 100 mm F2.8 Macro USM. Is it a large crop? Did you add element to the lens to come closer?
Best regards
