To finish on the study of the flight of the bug of wood (Raphigaster nebulosa), here a composition showing various positions of the insect during flight and phase of landing. Various camera angles are presented. The principal photograph shows the bug on a vulgar barley ear (Escourgeon). Exposure between 1/500 and the 1/2000 seconds. Lighting is natural, only the sun and a set of reflective mirrors, not of use of the flash. This represents many working hours, but when one likes one does not count!! All the photographs of flight are taken in ISO 800 and Neatimage is used to reduce the noise. The crop and saturation are carried out with Photoshop.
