As always, I'd like to apologize for the lack of postings lately. I’ve been quite busy recently and haven’t had as much time as I’d like to get out and shoot arthropods like I used to. Additionally, I’ve been in Italy for the past month and didn’t have my usual macro equipment with me. Be assured – more macro photos will come someday.
The image above is one of the plentiful and beautiful Hummingbird Hawk Moths (Macroglossum stellatarum) I encountered while in Arezzo, Italy. The shot was taken with my new Pentax Kx and an old 50mm f/1.4 prime.
To all of you who have been asking questions about my equipment or macrophotography in general – I apologize for my silence – I just can’t get back to all of you. If you are interested, I have an FAQ here: thomasshahan.com/other and additionally - a short video about my techniques here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqRn3at0H60
