Spring in November

Still getting into the low 20C (low 70s) temperatures. Shot hand held by resting an elbow on my knee -the critters just move too fast for a tripod to be practical. I've had a lot of practice, so I actually nailed the focus more often than I didn't.

 

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 1.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX. A combination of natural light (for the background) and the flash (illuminating the subject).
