p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hairy Shield-bug Dolycoris baccarum


I have previously seen this species in my garden but this was in a deciduous woodland.

I had been photographing some very small fungi by daylight exposure and had a very high (for me) ISO at 1600. I had activated my triple flash setup when I became aware of a movement in the leaf litter. No time to select a lower ISO. I removed the Raynox MSN and tracked the bug. It climbed up and down the obstacles and I became separated from my third flash gun and could only rapidly, and repeatedly, move the second one to approximately where I wanted it. (Both on freestanding brackets).

Thankfully, this bug (ca 12mm) was a bit of a poser and I got some good shots. At one stage, I picked it up, to move it to a new position. Getting it to let go of my finger was not easy!

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro at f11 (effective), twin TTL RC flash.

The stereo is crosseye.
