Fast Food - extreme edition

    Newer Older

    Pár hónapja kitettünk pár virágot az erkélyre, ami aztán idevonzotta ezt az apróságot egy kis uzsonnára. Sose gondoltam volna, hogy valaha lesz haszna a gépen az ilyen extra rövid záridőknek, most a szárnyak miatt jól jött. A másodperc 6400-ad részénél már láthatjuk őket szépen.

    Amúgy ez egy molylepke, a Kacsafarkú szender

    We've recently put some flowers on our balcony, those invited this guy to an afternoon snack. To capture wings, flapping with extreme speed, I had to dial to shutter speeds, that I've never imagined I'll ever use. 6400th of a second, and finally we can see those wings. That is extremely fast for a drive-in.

    That's a moth by the way, known as the Hummingbird Hawk-moth.

      I've never been able to feeze the wings when I've shot them. You did very well.

      What fun! I tried photographing a relative (a hummingbird clearwing moth) recently at 1/8000 s, and there was STILL a trace of motion in one of the wings!
