Welcome to my Insect Images website. These images will compliment my other sites, which can be visited on the links above.
The images have been taken on either a Canon EOS 30D or 40D SLR with a Canon 100 mm USM macro lens. The images were captured in handheld mode. The use of a mono or tripod is not always possible and sometimes it may be necessary to take a quick shot before the subject is disturbed.
This fairly lightweight combination and a fast enough shutter speed, allows hand held shots to be taken; however do not compromise the depth of field, which is essential in this genre of photography. A happy medium should be used for the best results.
