X-Wing, B-Wing and other "Movie-Insects"

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by misupix, May 25, 2007.

  1. Don't know why but lately I encounter a lot of "Cinema-Fans" among the local critters? :confused:




    First there was this X-Wing bug. I suppose he was on a secret mission (II or III) and took off immediately....
    original.




    Then I encountered this B-Wing (bee-wing :Crunk:). performing a very difficult landing on a "Imperial plant"
    original.





    Next was this pregnant Wolfspider (kids still in the eggpack on her back), she wants to sue Spiderman for child support.....
    original.





    A few days before, a Crab spider was ringing at our door and wanted to audition too. :rolleyes: We tried a few scenes from a classic movie: "Casablanca"

    "Here's looking at you, kid." [we skipped the kiss]
    original.

    "We'll always have Paris." [Turns and goes away]
    original.





    This beauty plausibly explained how she could be the Stunt Double for "Airwolf"
    original.


    original.





    I wonder how these got the idea of approaching me! :confused: I just watch movies, haven't produced one........................................................YET! :Crunk:




    Thanks for looking. C&C appreciated!​

    Michael,
    You are a riot! As though these shots weren't awesome enough on their own, you added humor to the mix! Well done!

    I love the "x-wing" bug! That's an amazing shot! Care to share what gear you used to shoot these?

    ps---if you haven't produced a movie yet, I'd say maybe you need to!!!
     
  3. Wow! Really beautiful!
     
  4. Not only was this very humorous but the photography was outstanding. Michael, you have outdone yourself. Take a bow.
     
  5. Wonderful series. Excellent shots.
     
  6. Wonderful shots and very funny captions. Thanks for the smiles, Michael. :smile:
     
  7. Great shots, Michael!

    And thanks for the :biggrin:

    These are excelent photos.
     
  10. I'm very impressed with the sharpness and clarity. Very tough to do in macro work, and with bugs no less!!! :smile:
     
  11. Great series. Bravo !!
     
  12. LOL... bee-wing. (arghh)
    That X-Wing and the dragon flies look really cool. Looks as if the 70-200 + 500D are a great combo. Wish I would knew a place in Berlin where I can shoot dragon flies other than by mere accident.

    Oh well. At least I have my sparrows and hooded crows..
