    Default The Leaf Eater 2

    The red pumpkin beetle is known as common pest to the farms. Generally they cut the leaves in such round pattern which I try to document here. There was a good number of this instance.

    EXIF Info:

    Camera: Nikon D7000
    Lens: Nikon 40mm f/2.8 macro
    ISO: 200
    Aperture: f/10
    Shutter Speed: 1/160
    Handheld, Edited, Cropped, Ring-flash fired

    Thank you.

    I liked the composition. The eye of the beetle visible through the hole adds to the composition. You could have tried using a further narrower aperture to get more details. How much crop is this? Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you Mrudul ji. This image is cropped about 10% (just an assumption. I would be thankful if anyone suggest me how to get the crop percentage.)

    Arun, you can check the below post, where Sabyasachi has explained how to accurately calculate the crop percentage. Hope that helps.

    This image gives us a good idea about this pest. The camera was more or less parallel to the leaf except for the bottom right corner. The beetle being slightly below the leaf results in slightly beyond the critical focus. So a further narrow aperture would have been great. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
