    Default Aerial shot of the mating... P.S.: Its not from a drone

    ID: Tiger beetle(specific id appreciated)

    This particular outing seemed to have brought out the tiger beetles, of different sizes and patterns, in huge numbers. With huge numbers of them, mostly hyperactive and hyper alert, framing them was quiet a task, and the same was for the mating pairs, which somehow managed to keep us on our toes, and bruised knees. Eventually came across this pair, slightly tiny one, which also seemed a bit hyperactive, but luckily, atleast for a short moment, didnt flee off. This gave me a chance to attempt a different sort of frame, a top down view of the beauties, almost like a drone shot.
    It was interesting to notice how the male would open up its front limbs wide apart, almost like a stretched out pose.

    EXIF:
    Canon 80D
    Canon 100mm macro
    F/11
    Shutterspeed 1/100
    ISO 200
    Handheld, External flash fired

    Good details. The top view with the vertical framing looks good. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    In engineering drawing we learnt that this angle is called as top view. The depth of field from this perspective covers both of them well. Ofcourse the mud will always be out of focus. However, this works to show the entire scene better. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
