This is a freehand shot of a feeding Hoverfly. Normally I'd grab on to the stem of that flower with my left hand, and then rest the lens on that same hand to help keep the scene steady. But there was no wind to mask the vibrations I was making and every time I tried to grab onto the flower I'd spook the critter. So I just braced my elbows on my chest and moved my body to get the focus where I wanted it.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to 1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.
