Your macro shots @f2.8

Just wondering, what are the situations in macro photography where f2.8 helps? Can you share your macro shots @f2.8

The single hair on that fly's head... crazy!


Subject isolation is the name of the game! Though this is only about 0.5x magnification.

35mm@f/2.8:

Where it helps most is with the bright viewfinder it gives. This is critical for MFing for effect @ 1:1. However, I also find it useful for shooting too:
