May Beetle and what looks like a Fungus Gnat. (composite image). Captured using a Cognisys insect flight rig.

Very nice! Those surely made shooting bird-in-flight photos look easy.

Lovely shot, and to get so much in focus.

These are marvelous pictures!

I would be interested to know the larger setup. The device from Cognisys handles synchronizing the exposure to capture an object being in the proper place -- framing and focus. But still you have to arrange to get the object into that place to start with. This strikes me as a matter of "bug-wrangling", and I have no idea how it's done.

EXIF information in the photo says that the moth was shot at nominal f/14 using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. Given the size of the moth, I'm guessing that's around effective f/20. From the standpoint of focus, this is classic one-shot stop-down technique.

Thanks Rik. The original field of view was about 40 mm on a 50 megapixel sensor. I cropped the image in post to about a 16 mm field of view, The insects wing span is around 8 mm.

I attract the insect to fly around flowers using a mercury vapor light which increases the probability of a hit significantly. I have also chased moths around flowers holding the rig but that's hard work and at 85 F not much fun.

Stunning images! Interesting to hear the mercury vapour lamp helps.

Ys, "insect wrangling" at its best!!! The plant hopper is my favorite, who ever sees these in flight like this?
