Behind The Lens

Location
This caterpillar was on a vine on paddock fence on my acreage.
Time
3:00pm Early March (which is our early autumn -fall in USA- in Australia).
Lighting
Even though lighting was fairly good being a shady afternoon, I opted to also use a flash to put light on the caterpillar.
Equipment
Tripod, Canon EOS 600D Camera with Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro ISUSM Lens. Standard camera flash.
Inspiration
The colours and shape of the caterpillar.
Editing
I cropped the photo so that space was not lost with just background blur.
In my camera bag
Camera, Spare battery, spare filter, lens, cleaning cloth.
Feedback
You definitely need a tripod (or a very steady hand). Always try to focus mainly on the eyes.
