DISCLAIMERI am a photographer, not an entomologist. I do my best to have professionals assist in identifying the subjects of my photographs. However, positive identifications can not always be done unless the specimen is dead and viewed under a microscope. If you do find an error, or have doubts about the identification provided, please let me know in the comments or by email.

♦ Let’s open this Week on Sunday with video by Stanislav Snäll and John Hallmén, working in the field and showing some simple flash diffusion methods:
♦ Swedish photographers John Hallmén and Stanislav Kind are professional photomacrographers who run the website Makrofokus, an excellent resource for those wishing to learn more about focus stacking. Be sure to follow the MakroFokus Facebook page for regular updates on their work!
♦ And on the science side of things, a fascinating video documentary on insect dissection. Such complexity – and even beauty - within!
Lots of great information in this video, and a look into the cool technology science is using to explore bug wonder!
♦ The last week was spent in continued spring cleaning in our home garden , with a mid-week break taking the Small-group Macro Workshop down to the great people at the Crop Diversification Centre South in Brooks, Alberta! We had a great time looking at how to get the most out DSLRs and then, after a yummy lunch (in which someone forgot to bring the buns!) , we had a session on the many paths to making macro. We even had time to wander around the grounds to practice with some equipment set-ups. Thanks to Shelley for inviting me down, and to Scott, Simone and Mike for participating.
* I also received a bonus cutworm specimen – chock full of parasites - like the one in Shelley’s timelapse video below.
Until next week!
