Foraging Cricket

I found this Cricket foraging on a Dandelion at the Monte Orlando Nature Preserve in Gaeta, Italy. Shot in the late morning this critter was more hungry than afraid. The hardest part was waiting for the critter to move to an area of the flower that allowed me to have a clear shot without anything badly out of focus in the foreground. This set was shot with the new diffusers that I built for the macro twin flash.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI and Clarity in that order. I dragged the shutter to expose for the natural light in the background while keeping the subject in the shade.
