Haaaaa...haaaaaaaaa...haaaaaaaaaaa.... :) These leafhoppers have escaped by little from your "fading mania" my Dear friend George!... Really is a pleasure to hear from you again friend, I hope you and your little Peter are very good and I send blessings and good wishes from Venezuela!.
I am making these photos of tiny insects, using the integrated camera flash. I think I'll have to buy a ring flash (currently still out of my budget, as usual) because the flash of the camera will not let me get very close the lens to insects. I found hardly use this built-in flash (you know I'm very empirical taking pictures) because some parts of the insects result too bright in the photos.
I0ve used f/20 because I find it hard to focus with my macro lens (this is manual focus) and I do not use tripod... Our insects jumping as crazy even while copulating! ... Almost impossible to place a tripod nearby! ... but equally I have fun with these tiny creatures! ....
I Hope my free time allows me to post some new pictures in TN, I need your "old guillotine" to hear about many flaws I have in my pictures! ... Now I usually posting in a Facebook group where there are many Venezuelan entomologists, and they do not care about the technical quality of the picture but "bugs look" .... So I think I've lost some "mystical" to work hard for a good picture! ... So thank you for these very useful comments from you! ... Happy Sunday friend George! ...

Please do not follow "fading South America" ​​.... haaaaa ... haaaaaaaa .... haaaaaa .... You're quite a character, my dear friend! ...

Regards
