And what could possibly be the appropriate title for this picture? Bug love? Bug war? Make bugs – not war….. ??

Yes, I must admit that I was not prepared properly in this scenario.

As usual, I was “just” looking for the flower, so I was quite surprised to find these two couples, in various activities in the same frame, and that they also sat there while I set the camera right.

This photo was the first for the day, so there was a lot to do. Measuring the light, increasing the exposure to compensate for the close up rings, focus, which is in itself a time-consuming procedure with a focal depth of a few millimeters with handheld camera while blowing …..

  1. love the fact that you decided shoot “Bug love? Bug war? Make bugs โ€“ not warโ€ฆ.. ??” in b/w… so good ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you very much!
      Yeah, I love bw flower macros, I have difficulties to get it right, so it has become a challenge for me to use bw in these cases, and when I saw this photo when I hang the film for drying after developing it, I was really happy to have used bw.
