I was experimenting with three flashes in this picture, but this beast wouldn't want to sit still. Pretty carapace, though.

I just had a weird game on MTGO that ended in a way I didn't expect.

My opponent played a Trostani, which I cloned.
He then played a Rhox Faithmender, which he then copied with a Progenitor Mimic.
After he got his token from the Mimic, I myself played Progenitor Mimic on his token (which makes two tokens instead of one). We each cloned some more tokens.

This went on for a bit until both of us hit the hard limit of 32,767 life on MTGO. I had 28 Rhox Faithmenders out (and a Trostani) and was planning on playing a Mimic on his Voracious Worm so I could eventually swing for 33,000 damage or so (after playing an overloaded Cyclonic Rift). Not much we could have done otherwise, attacking with Faithmenders doesn't really do much, does it and the rest of my creatures didn't matter as much, either.

However, on Turn 21 I had ten triggers from "Rhox Mimic" tokens on the stack and when #29 resolved and ETB, the game suddenly changed my life to -32,767 and I lost.

My Faithmender multiplier was at 268.435.456 (with the 28th, although make that 2x for the 29th) at this time, gaining me 1,342,177,280 life (in theory) for the first token, and 1,374,389,534,720 life from the last (sure, the hard limit still applies).

Why did my life total suddenly go 65,534 points down!?___

This strange guy (most likely female) lives in a hole in a tree.
Only comes out when it's warm, so not these days. 11°C and rainy, yet again. Not shooting much macro in these conditions :/.

The hole diameter is around 1.25mm.

So, I hurried into the botanical garden 20 minutes before closing, not much time to get into photographing. Well, that's what I took home.

When I looked for my lost raw files yesterday, I found an old directory with images from long ago. This is from 2004 when I was on vacation in South Tyrol, showing a part of the Dolomiti.
It's a handheld panorama made with an old Canon bridge camera (Powershot S1 or so) I now stitched together in Photoshop.
Location: 46.610329,11.769018
Taken from the "Glatsch Alm".

Lost Weevil

I knew I had this folder with plenty of undeveloped, non-categorised RAW-files somewhere.
With 8TB of hard drive space and tens of thousands of DNG-files that's the search for the needle in the needle-stack. Now I found it. On my SSD for programs. What was I thinking!?


Handheld stack from two images. Live, moving animal. Slight crop.
Ratio at least 2.5:1. Pentax K10D, ISO 200, flash used. Schneider Kreuznach Componon-S 50/2.8 reversed on extension.

Something different -- because sometimes when you take out your camera on a walk, you stumble right into a landscape that's actually worth photographing.
Of course, you didn't bring your tripod. And there's a hedge in the way.
But then you can always switch on live view and hold your camera overhead. Which I did. Except for the live view. So there's that. The next picture will be macro photography again, I promise ;-).

Also, this is as SOOC as it gets for me.

The colours look weird in this, but this mayfly decided to walk right in front of a white reflector. Not that it helped with the lighting (reflectors are not supposed to be behind a subject right?).

I'm finally back shooting after my thumb healed up. I sort of mutilated it with a kitchen knife (trying to peel a pomelo), so it had to be stiched up. At the same place I had mutilated it 20 years ago (not trying to peel a pomelo).
The scars cross and it'll look awesome.

Testing out my new Pentax Q while trying #StreetPhotography .

I found it easy to take pictures of people using this tiny camera, it's barely noticeable, and if people notice it, they still see my face and respond accordingly.
This was done with a preset, a hard B/W conversion that does not save RAW files (I usually always shoot raw). It's #sooc , as I've done all editing (except downsampling) within the Q.

Pentax Q, 8mm/1.9@1.9(~47mm on full frame), ISO 1600, 1/50.

I've had such bad luck with macro lately, everytime I pack my camera the insects seem to be hiding. But then when I go out without a camera I'm surrounded by jumping spiders, wasps and weird ants. To solve this, I've aquired myself a Pentax Q, a camera I can always have with me.

This is still done with a DSLR, though. I'll go out shooting now, maybe something more interesting shows up ;).

Mandibles of a live ant

I captured this, handheld, with a JML microscope objective mounted on extension tubes on my camera. The ant was moving (although very slowly).

This is my highest magnification yet, 15:1 on an APS-C sensor.
The width of this image correspondends to roughly 1.6mm in real life.

Stacked from two shots, not cropped.

And no, normally you would not use microscope objectives in the field like that ;).

I've always wanted to try my Pentax DA 35/2.8 Macro limited on full frame.
Some vignetting, but it's barely noticeable when stopped down.
Pretty good for a "short" lens designed for APS-C.

Also, handheld macro (well, close-up) with film. I doubt I'll do this again, digital is much more effective for macro.

Fuji Superia ISO 200, F/6.3, 1/125.

Male Anthidium manicatum, or European wool carder bee in flight.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthidium_manicatum

In the background you can see parts of the habitat, Stachys byzantina or Lambs Ear.

I'm still working on my automated system to photograph insects in flight, this one was done manually with a Schneider Componon-S 100/5.6 on a bellows (F/8, 1/750s). Handheld, no flash.

I've stalked this one for at least half an hour. It just wouldn't sit still.
Well, almost. :)

I've tried my luck at catching some bees in flight. It's very hard ;).

These are Macropis fulvipes. They're collecting very fatty oil from Lysimachia Punctata (the yellow flowers) which they use to harden their earth shelters against humidity and to mix it with pollen to feed their larvae.

35mm/2.8@6.7, 1/1000s, handheld, everything manual, no flash.

Luck > Skill

The sharpness and composition isn't really there, but it was hard to get as it is ;). Handheld, 35mm/2.8, no flash.

Testing a new Meopta Anaret-S 80mm/4.5 I got really cheap on eBay.
Liking it so far, incredible contrast. It's a simple four lens design, no focus ring, manual aperture.

Also, my first Odonata.
Close up, 1:2 to 1:3 or so. ISO is way up, the background could be better, too.

I was actually done for the day but you can't just stop listening to Les Troyens by Berlioz once you've started (That's what Picard listens to when Riker tells him about the Borg attack on the fleet in First Contact, go figure).
So, I decided to edit these photographs I took today.

Handheld stack from three pictures. Cropped to nearly 100%.
Yepp, it's walking.
