Grasshopper in hazy sun on Cupressus hedge. Hand held Canon Eos 60D, EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens , 1/30 sec @ f/25, ISO 640. Process through Adobe Camera RAW. Spotted this fellow slowly working his way up the hedge. Popped off 3 shots, of which this turned out best, as a test of the close-up abilities of the 10-22mm zoom lens.
How far away was this guy? 5cm?
Canon rates MFD at 24cm/10in, but I guess you can get a bit closer with manual focus... And considering what lens this was, it probably was quite a bit closer.
Then again, 22mm (i.e. ca 38mm equivalent) is not that wide any more.
Quite close. A matter of inches. It's about 7' up near the top of a tall hedge (= right hand edge of frame), so focusing done in 'Live View' using the slow method, forget what it's called, rather than the fast one which flips the mirror... A stupid place for a grasshopper to be! Right out in the open on the wrong colour foliage and very vulnerable to bird attack. I noticed it the moment I got out of my car.
