Yellow aphids

By roverfoxy9
Taken this lunchtime, before they got a good spraying. It's a nice sunny day, so with a bit of spot metering was able to get a nice dark background. I'm new to macro, so any comments welcome. I went for ISO 800 to get a good shutter speed (1/750) and depth of field (f5.6), although I'm sure a tripod would have helped. This is a heavy crop of the original. First time I've played around with Rawshooter too (I normally shoot jpegs, but am going to start doing RAWs more often)

oo-err very creepy but I like it a lot, great close up work. I like the low view point looking up at the bugs,

Ah probably, they must be at the local sucrose benefit office.
