Bukit Gasing Macro

This is not the first time I visit this place. The previous trip I failed to hunt some interesting insect, thus I did not share the photo.

(A weird insect)

(A closer look. Looks like an alien to me)

I heard that its a good place to shoot macro. But I still could not find enough bugs for me to shoot in Bukit Gasing.

Panning 02

It has been so long (almost a year) since my last panning practice.

All shots @ 1/40s, f/9, ISO 100

Any improvements?

Studio Macro

This is the first time I bring an insect to my "mini studio".

My mom found this bug outside of the house and she knew I'm into macro, so she hand it to me.

This beetle is exactly the same species that I shot few days back. Learning from the past experience, I have to shoot this insect in an confined room to prevent it from flying away (I only managed to take 2 shots last time and it flew).

I'm using f/18 + 1/200s all the way this time. The lighting was satisfied as long as the bug's body is not reflective.

I'm not sure the exact ID of this beetle, but it seems like very similar to Figeater beetle (Cotinis mutabilis)

Don't worry, the beetle was not harmed during the shooting and I released it to the nature as soon as I finish shooting.
