Literally anything from 1 shot perfect to 100+ and still no keeper!

With wild creatures in situ, you don't tend to have a lot of control over the situation most of the time.

That aphid(?) is well taken

I seem to take tons of shots for the odd keeper, I get loads like this
P4190522
Just missed focus but enough to reject it
P4190530
For any like this

I'd say I reject half my shots before they get to the computer, sometimes half of those that make it that far are rejected before import, and then maybe 10-20%of what's left actually get edited and exported.

My gardens pretty young so bug wise it's a bit sparse, plus I've had to rethink it a bit this year, it'll probably be a couple of years before I get a decent level of bug life which makes my macro stuff a bit challenging

It's been really frustrating lately, every morning my lawn is crawling with some large black and yellow wasps, they look like parasitic ones but they're so fast, unpredictable and skittish I just can't get a shot of them. If I was using film I think I would go bankrupt before I got one

I thought the second shot was a frog at first glance.
Nice work

Your spider images have inspired me to get out for the day with the macro lens.

How many shots do you take to get a good one, I seem to take loads.







The flower was a stacked image of 15 shots and I set the camera up so it picked up no light in the room then shined two rhino beams to light the flower so I had just the flower with a black background, I think it works quite well.

The second image the insect was less than 3mm wide, it was sitting on my backpack.

I haven't actually tried the ikeas in my flashes, they are usually in my laser level that eats batteries in no time. They don't seem to last quite as long as the maplin ones but at half the price of enerloops I'd buy 2 lots of ikea ones

The Panasonic charger the enerloops came with is miles better than the energizer ones I've had. I haven't tried an ikea charger

Edit, having looked at the ikea website at the charger, it looks like my Panasonic one with different stickers!

Thanks both

I read that the Amazon Basics are likely to be Enerloop too.
With the price difference got to be worth a punt on the Ikea ones.

Petapixel article on Ikeaís batteries being very similar to the eneloop ones. Iíve not used either, like you I get plenty of free ones.

I've got loads of rechargeables I use, I bought all the aa size I could find when maplin were shutting, I think it was a fiver for 8 high power batteries
Also got some eneloops which are similar performance, and some ikea ones that are much cheaper and not that far behind.

I do have a godox v860 with a lithium battery, and it does last longer and recycle faster, but it is a bit heavy for on camera use and being lithium, it'll work at full power until it doesn't. You don't get that warning of things slowing down. A spare is expensive and you can't guarantee you'd get a replacement in the future. I did intend to replace my aa versions but decided against it. The tt685 heads I've got are the same bar the battery. My ad200s are lithium too but those heads are different gravy!

Any tips for flash battery power?

Iím getting a little frustrated with battery life in my Speedlight 430 EX II
Itís great with new batteries but obviously recharge times slow down as the batteries fade, taking longer and longer.
Normally I have AAís coming out of my ears (work leftovers) but having been a little too generous with them lately, and no work to restock, Iím rapidly running out of my free ones and the the thought of actually buying them at a rate of 4-8 per shooting day is a bit much!

Are any of the rechargeables viable for this application?

Is there a better replacement for the Speedlight itself?


Eneloop Pro looking like the favourite...
