You'll have to excuse the black background in this Digger Wasp shot. I took it in the field in an area where there was no significant natural light in the background and nothing behind the critter to reflect the light from the flash. Had to get a shot though cause I rarely see them.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI, Sharpen AI, and Clarity in that order.

Woah - I love how detailed this photo is. Inspiring. :la:

Also I actually think the black background works really well in this photo - yellow and black are the two most prominent colors and the blurred black background really brings attention to the wasp's eyes.
