Location  Lago di Averno
I stopped at Lago d'Averno and photographed this Violet Darter in the heat of the day. I know the habits and quirks of this species, so it's not too difficult to get right on top of them even when they are actively hunting. At life size my flash is at the maximum distance that it will get from the subject, so this represents my worst case light quality.

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. I post I used Topaz Sharpen AI, Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.
