Next fase with MP-E 65mm 1-5x lens

diversen-03-2009-101 Last weekend here in Holland we had a careful start of the spring, so I decided to get some field work done (in the garden). Grabbed my Canon 5D body, macro ring flash, and my new MP-E 65mm lens. The hunt for insects has started.

Again, I am telling you that it is not an easy job to work with the MP-E 65mm lens, but damn, I love it. Focusing is hell, DOF is less than nothing, and visibility is zero, when light gets blocked by lens and the flash mounted on front of lens. But hey you need a challenge.

I managed to get a few good shots in the pocket of a rain worm, a woodlouse, and an unidentified insect that was caught in a spider web (spider also included). So I think I need to get myself an insect encyclopedia, due to the fact that there will be a lot of unidentified insects passing my lens.
