Another composite image of fireflies in my backyard. This time with a telephoto lens at f/13 to try to get a deeper depth of field effect. As before, the camera was set up to take 25 second images, and the resultant 110 images combined using the Startrails program.
Yesterday was the first day of summer, and my backyard is full of firelies. I set up a camera to take 25 second images, and then used the Startrails program to combine ~150 image (ISO 400) for the first image and then ~100 images (ISO 6400) for the second image. The D3s can see in the dark, and I didn’t take it all the way up to 100K ISO.
I really don’t like seeing this guy crawling above my bed. I know that they are going after other insects — BUT look at those claws. I added a zoom from the image showing the multiple lenses in the eye and spikes on the legs.
