extraordinary shots with such a tiny critter, .... the first shot shows the razor like DOF on the leaf yet you've managed such great focus across the whole bee, extraordinary!

cheers

Excellent Rense. What is the working distance with the 50 on the 90 macro? When I tried my 50 reversed on my 100 macro, the distance was so close the critters would take off before I could get a shot.

BTW.....that looks like a white faced hornet.

As always Rense, wonderful work and thank you for showing us. If the image would have been taken over here I would say that the critter was one of the Tetramesa species.
