These shots of Small Skipper were taken tonight with the Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm F/2.8 lens. I've had some really good fun tonight with this lens.
These images involve two different skippers, but taken from very different angles. The image above has had the exposure raised to +1.3 EV to compensate for the bright background.
The image above and below have the aperture set to F/8 at approx six inches distance, thus the only part of the insect in focus is the eye and antennae.
