These were taken yesterday. Something I have not seen was these mating pairs...took an insurance shot first. Wanted to put some green leaves at the BG so it will not be too dark, but, disturbed them instead and they went off somewhere more hidden to continue their task....

The 2nd shot is another species of leavehopper, taken with reverse lens. With the eye, it seems quite blend, but with some shots that I took in the past, I could see the blue band on the head. Thus, decided to use the reverse lens to capture the details of its head. The DOF is REALLY shallow, and the left side the eye should be better at the same plane of the other eye.

#1 FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F8, 1/100s

#2 FZ10+Reverse lens, ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F8, 1/200s

Appreciate your comments!:D

Very nice shots! The second one has so much color it doesn't look real! Jim

Wow! I need to learn how you get such shallow DOF.
