Everything is Permuted

Insects and Bugs

A selection of garden bugs (insects and invertebrates) seen in our garden and the surrounding area during 2008

More damselfy pictures are in their own album.

Most of the photographs were taken with the Canon EOS 400D (or from August 2008, the EOS 40D) with the Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG macro lens. For some shots I have used extension tubes or added the Kenko Teleplus 1.4x Pro 300 DG teleconverter (which gives me slightly greater working distance). The butterflies are sometimes taken with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens, with extension tubes. Flash used is either the Sigma EM-140 DG ring flash or Canon 430EX.
