p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The dreaded vine weevil


The scourge of keen gardeners but they are quite amazing looking things as adults. It's the grubs that do all the damage by eating plant roots.
All shots focus stacked using zerene. All shots except the last one 5Dmk2/MPE-65/$30Ex flash. Last shot sony A6000/ Oshiro 60mm lens at 2:1 with Raynox MSN-202 on the front/ Neewer NW320 flash.

Brian,

Interesting to see you using the MSN.

The grubs are by far the most damaging pest for plants in containers.

Terrific set, Brian.

The focused areas are perfect and, with the razor-thin DOF, the corrugated areas of the in-focus portions of white flower petal add to the effect (in 1-3, esp.).

That said, the last image (taken with the Oshiro 60mm) is noticeably inferior to the shots taken with the MP-E 65mm. Not in the same league IMHO.

John,

Maybe but you have to compare like with like. The principle plane of focus in the last two images, as well as the angle of view, differ, not to mention the positions of appendages. The last image appears to have more detail of fine sculpturing posterior to the eyes. I'm not convinced either way.

Just one comment on the last image- It was a much shallower stack than the others so does not have the same DOF. I did not think there was too much difference between it and the MPE-65 shots from the in focus detail POV.
