Macro-photography is never easy. One needs to equip with patient, steady hand, right gadgets and more importantly, the subject. All are easy except the later one, the subject. The subjects, mostly insects will not fly to you but you need to look for it.
I might look strong from the outside but I am kinda soft on the inside. Aiks, that does not sounds right? What I am trying to say is, I am not a fan of small crawling creatures. So, hunting for them is definitely not in my equation.. but well, sometimes, TikkoSS can be unpredictable
While hunting for spidy lately, I found this ladybird. As a self-proclaimed macro photographer wannabe, I will not let a single opportunity goes away just like that. Considering that ladybird is one of my favourite childhood clothing brand (wonder what happen to it now), I decided to make it my MODEL.
Now only I get to see lady bird in close up and I can confirm that it is neither lady nor bird alike. I hardly even distinguish its gender. Maybe it is gay like me virtually . From the glance of it, lady bird is like carrying a shell at the back like turtle too!
But if you look closer, it is like a split wings hiding below it. The problem with this type of wing-ly insects are they fly. Which is why makes macro photography much more challenging than any other type of photography (I will try not to compare lightning photography).
This looks like a priceless shot as you get to see the “bird” expanded its wings before it takes off. Not to brag on my skills but YEA, I AM GOOD! Anyhow, I felt this shot is a lot simpler than My Dream Shots : Dear Mr. Mozzie …
And both have the same ending, both fly away .. I guess now my rooms started to harvest all these small little creatures by accident
