Hungry Moth at 5x

Cheap trick: Trap a moth under a glass, put some honey underneath it, and when it starts feeding take off the glass and shoot.


Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. I set a water bottle behind the critter to keep the background from being black (the color in the background is the label on the bottle).
