what a fun shot

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Peru, near the Sandoval lake.
Time
It was the middle of the afternoon.
Lighting
Sun light passes through the leaf. As long as you make sure the leaf is in focus, everything should be fine.
Equipment
For this type of image, I'd strongly advise to use a Macro. Make sure the leave doesn't move or your image will be blurry. I used a Canon 6D and a 100mm macro USM lens.
Inspiration
The amount of living creatures around me inspired me
Editing
I only cropped the image and slightly saturated it.
In my camera bag
In my bag, I usually have a Canon 6d, a Canon Macro 100mm USM lens, a 24-105 IS lens, a Tamron 150-600 lens and a Manfrotto MT294A3.
Feedback
Use a Macro lens and block the leaf - on both ends, if it gets windy - without scaring the animal.
