Ever wondered what goes into preparing insect photographs for Bug of the Week?
First you need to find an insect, like this bug on a hollyhock leaf. See it?
Let’s get closer. Do you see it now?
To give you scale, the leaf is about 3 1/2 inches across.
Here’s my first glimpse in macro view through the camera lens.
Because the insect is sitting at a weird angle, I have to maneuver to get a fuller shot before it scoots away.
Now I can see what it is more clearly. This is how the raw photograph looked before cropping.
Finally, I cropped it to give you a bug’s eye view.
Isn’t it amazing what the camera lens reveals?
