Thanks for the links Rik. Some interesting and excellent shots and discussion. My own ethic is non- interference shooting but fully appreciate other people's different attitudes. I even bend my own rules by sometimes baiting bugs or moving them if I can to an easier shooting location, but I always put them back againrjlittlefield wrote:Brian,
Yep, the animal subjects in these deep stacks are almost always dead.
There are a few exceptions, like Charlie's "horsefly" in the old forum, and my recent "face of a hobo" and "orb weaving spider".
The problem is, it takes several minutes just to shoot the 30-100 frames required for these shots, and getting something like a fly to hold still for that long is pretty challenging!
There is some discussion of the ethics of this issue here, in the old forum.
