Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I post I used Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.
This is a male, and down at the lake they like to hunt while perched on a wooden fence. When hunting they are really territorial, and when I get close and they fly off it's sometimes due to them seeing a critter to eat or they just want to chase off another male. Once they realize that I'm not a threat I can get really close, but they take off more often than they let me take a photo.
