[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The series 'In the Low mm-Range'
will focus on small insects!

Here, I show another attempt to achieve a suitable picture of a very small insect, again a cicada (leaf-hopper) nymph.
It rests on the underside of a leaf of the same Salix caprea bush from which I already posted several insect pictures, for example that of the previous cicada nymph: see here!

Length of the insect: about 3-4 mm.

Within the narrow depth of field, details of the insect and of the leaf surface can be seen.
In spite of f/11, the focus plane has to be exact.
As can be estimated from the sharp leaf areas, back or forth movements in the range of 1 mm would dramatically decrease the quality.

Conditions
- bright natural light
- ISO 400
- handheld (also for this purpose)
- combination of 35 mm macro-lens with an Olympus Digital Extension-Tube EX-25

Other pictures in the series
A mini-fly
A black leafhopper nymph

La messa a fuoco sull'insetto è davvero eccellente, complimenti!

Hi Peter

It's incredible how narrow an f/11 DOF can be at such magnification level... :)
But your macro lens together with the extension tube can indeed produce very good shots if controlled well - which is exactly what you did here again.
Impeccable details for such a minuscule subject, very good focus and side POV, too.
Wonderful work once more!

Bravo and TFS
