Lunch Date

The tricky part, when shooting insect pairs like these Carpenter Ants, is getting both of their leading eyes in focus.


Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.


Technique: I put some 2:1 sugar syrup around the edge of an upside down plastic plate in an area where there were a lot of foraging Carpenter Ants.
