Am I reading well? F36 - 30 seconds? WOW
First I wish I had F36 for my macros.
Second I suppose there was no wind at all to move that leaf. This is a DOF, all the frame is perfect and detailed, the blacks are perfect, more considering that there are quite clear places in the leaf and insect. Congratulations.
Great macro Gerhard
30 sec, did you use glue to hold the bug ? ;-)
Great DOF , good details and colours.
Very good note.

I think the bug was very busy to stand so many seconds without to move! :)
Very nice macro shot! Good details and colors!

He leido tu respuesta a Felipe... pero lo importante es que con tu equipo alcanzas F36!!!
Espectucular perspectiva con perfecto foco y agudeza.
Una gran captura para este assassin tan especial.
I have read your answer to Felipe... but the important thing is that with your equipment you reach F36!!!
Espectucular perspective with perfect focus and sharpness.
A great capture for this assassin so special.
Gerhard, I also read your reply. I'm not sure I understand what the longer exposure in the lowlight after flash did. Whatever it was the results are fantastic! Very well done!!

Gerhard, very nice. He looks to have a bit of damage he's lost the tarsus on his front leg. So something tried tried to thwart this assassin. Great shot, and very good note too. Thanks for posting.

As I have just said to somebody else with digital its well worth experimenting and reviewing and making adjustments on the fly, this one seems to work really well. goodclean image and great notes.

I have not seen one of these guys before and will be looking out for them from now on. The sharpness is stunning and I also like the long exposures - it just adds a bit of extra quality to the shot.
Very well done.

30 seconds for insect is eternity, maybe it was dead :-) ? Great macro though, very good DOF and details.
