p.1 #1 · Click beetle


This is going to be a long series of images of a click beetle that I found (Didn't know that they could be found at this time of year.) But I would really like to find out what the name of this beetle. The full body shots are really mostly for ID.

C&C wanted.

Some good shots in there - esp like #8.
Still seem to be rather narrow DOF for a bug like this. As commented in a previous thread, if shooting at or near 1:1 try setting the aperture to F22 on the Nikon which is equivalent to us canon shooters using F11.

Oh I must have missed that but that really is a big difference. Thanks for the comment and I am glad that you like #8.

Some nice shots , Julian. Do try setting your aperture as Brian suggests. You might have to decrease your shutter speed. Play with it and you will find what works for you. Just keep trying

Good set Julian! #8 and #10 are my picks.

Out of interest, are you using auto-focus when shooting?

No I am setting it to the closest focusing distance and moving up until I have it in focus.
