I was holding the Canon 5D Mark III, with the Canon 65mm MP-E lens and the MT 24X flash attached.

This fly landed and at f16, ISO 200-320, 1/200, he was all mine.

I tried to go on a walk this sunny San Diego morning, but I did not make it 30 feet out the front door, before I found this spectacular photo opportunity.

This green spider captured the bee and several small flies (?) have jumped on board.

Video coming soon!

I opened the Canon EOS C300, charged the battery and took her out to the back yard.  This was shot in about 30 minutes.  I used 3 lens (f/2.8 100mm, f/1.4 24mm, MP-E 65mm Macro) and a slider)

We would need to decide on a criteria, a set of guidelines, a set of observable, measurable and repeatable data points, to decide what species is the fittest.

There are 10 quintillion insects on the planet earth at any given moment.  That is a “1″ with 19 zeros following.  That is 1 billion insects for every human being.

These flies were enjoying some feces (unknown animal) in the San Diego desert.
