Behind The Lens

Location
I was visiting family in New Jersey, we went to some gardens
Time
It was afternoon, but the time didn't matter
Lighting
At this magnification it has to be a flash.
Equipment
Canon 5d mkiii, canon mpe-65 and a canon mt24 flash. It was handheld which is always a little tricky.
Inspiration
I love trying to get really close seeing the patter on the wing had to be done.
Editing
Not much really, a bit of sharpening.
In my camera bag
Canon 1dx mkii and a 600mm f4 go most places with me, my trusty monopod, then a selection of general and macro lenses.
Feedback
You need to be patient and have a steady hand, try not to breath.
