Winner Feature I: GeorgeXVII
Winner Feature
It is my pleasure to introduce you to our first Winner Feature from DDSuggestionDrive's February Drive. Each month, we will be congratulating one of our top 5 suggesters for their participation.
Today, I have the pleasure of sharing my interview with GeorgeXVII, who suggested work from a grand total of 569 artists! :faint: A traditional artist himself, George stands out in the DeviantART community because of his generosity and passion to help others.
Interview
Use this space to provide a brief introduction to yourself:
Hi, my name is GeorgeXVII. I'm a 26-year-old born in Romania but I grew up in the beautiful country of Spain.
I've been a deviant since June 8, 2014 and I swear that DeviantART changed my life in a good way. I've visited this site as a non-member for several years before I decided to make my own account, because I felt that my work wasn't g

Spring and features
Hello everyone! :wave:
Hope all is well. :aww: First i want to say i'm sorry for being very late in answering comments/thanking for favs recently. i've been kinda busy and haven't had a whole lot of time to get on here. :( So it's taking me a bit to catch up on everything. On a better note it's been so beautiful outside. All the snow has melted away and the temps are up in the high 50s and 60s!! I've been able to get outside with my camera some.:happybounce: I love it! :love: I'm so excited spring is almost here. Only a few more days! :excited: I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
:heart:

Wool Carder Bee on the Move
I was shooting this dormant European Wool Carder Bee when it woke up. The scene unfolded so fast I only had time for this one image. Shot horizontally but framed for a vertical composition (I turned the shot 90 degrees in post). Easier than trying to hold the camera in portrait orientation.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the Lavender stem with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

Caterpillar on the Move
This caterpillar wasn't sitting still, and I'm trying to get better at tracking moving subjects with the view finder. Kinda surprised my delete key has any text left on it...

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the stem of the plant with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

European Wool Carder Bee
A semi active European Wool Carder Bee trying to get its metabolism going. Shot horizontally but framed for a vertical composition (I turned the shot 90 degrees in post). Easier than trying to hold the camera in portrait orientation.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (above 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the stem of the flower with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

Caterpillar Feeding on Mint
Caterpillars feed by extending their heads and then curling up as they chew. So the trick was to focus right at the edge of the leaf and wait for the critter to bring it's head up to start the next "row". I got seven frames before it figured out I was close and stopped feeding. Shot horizontally but framed for a vertical composition, and I turned the shot 90 degrees in post. Easier than trying to hold the camera in portrait orientation.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the stem of the plant with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

Honeybee in a Passion Flower
Even though I baited this honeybee they didn't want to let me get close. It took well over an hour to get them acclimated to my presence.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I'm holding on to the stem of the flower with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.
