DEVIANCE now has it's own profile page!
Hello DEVIANCE readers and future readers! :wave:
This means you! :#1:
Just letting you all know that DEVIANCE the no. 1 dA zine now has it's own profile page! :woohoo:
When the whole groups thang finally comes on board, hopefully I'll be able to transform the page into one of those, where you will be able to able to add blogs and contribute to the zine.
After all, the intention is that DEVIANCE is created as a zine for the artists, featuring fabulous artists, and made by artists (and not just me and a handful of contributors).
So go over to the profile page :icondeviance-zine: and watch it today. And feedback is welcome! Whether you are a Premuim Member or not, :eyes: you can critique in the comments and tell us what you love, like, and hate about DEVIANCE and let's make it huge!
Before I announce who is in the next issue, I need to tell you that it won't be coming out on August 1st as per usual (it's a monthly zine). I've just ha

DD Suggestions
What is astounding about this site is the amount of amazing works of art submitted every day. As an art-lover, I can spend hours and hours on end browsing or staring at beautiful artworks. Sometimes though, as you might have noticed those pictures or literature works which astound you most have received little attention. In order to help such artists in their development and encourage them to keep on creating, dA has established the tradition of showcasing them as Daily Deviations. This section is always full of breathtaking works and the most amazing feature is that normal users can suggest their favourite works themselves.
I must admit that this has turned to something close to addiction to me as it is usually a few dozens of times a day that I go "WOW" seeing a picture. Since only some of the suggestions are featured but all of them are spectacular on my opinion, I'd like to share them via a news article. If you like it, please fav it so that more people can see these gorgeous works

Sleeping Solitary Bee II
Here's a higher magnification view of how this solitary bee uses it's proboscis to anchor itself while it sleeps.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Sleeping Solitary Bee I
Not the first time I've seen this species of solitary bee sleeping with it's proboscis anchored into a flower's stamen.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Mason Maintenance
The bad weather is really making it tough for the local pollinators. I was shooting this waterlogged Mason Bee when he started cleaning the water off of his fur.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Red Mason Bee IV
This newly hatched Red Mason Bee (male) is one of mine. The cocoons I harvested last year are starting to hatch. Due to the cool temps (13C) and overcast skies this little one was having a tough time getting his metabolism up. He would move around and then freeze, and I'd look for a photo.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Red Mason Bee III
About a dozen Mason Bees hatched today, and I carried them to some flowers so they could get some energy. Due to the cool (14C) partly cloudy weather they had a hard time getting their metabolism going. This little guy would forage for a while then turn around to look outside the flower. His metabolism would tank and every time he stopped moving I'd look for a photo.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount to keep the flower from blocking the "A" flash head), E-TTL metering, (+1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
