Hang Tight Little Beetle
June 22, 2012
This beautiful shiny dog bane beetle is trying to climb the leaf when I found him.
Shot with the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and Canon FD 50mm F/1.8 I also use my Raynox DCR-250 for greater magnification, this allowed me to cut the minimum focus distance of the FD 50mm F/1.8 so I can move in much closer. The FD 50mm F/1.8 is not a macro lens and the minimum focus distance is 0.6m or around 23 inches. With the DCR-250 you can significantly cut this.
