Alien Invasion ... Hidden

Aliens in the flower … under our very noses


Beautiful shot! Great colors, composition and macro work.

I am not really convinced that the ants are from Mars though… : ;

Super macro work Don …

Not a Macro, just a ordinary shot with a EOS M50 & EF-M 15-45 F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens … @22mm, f/4, 1/80 sec and ISO100 … so just a close up shot that was cropped a little as it will focus down to 250mm. (Big flower)

Did you get the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM? I was curious how the built in light worked and whether you would use that with the M50 as opposed to the 100 mm macro.

Yes I do have it and it is very, very sharp … an outstanding macro lens. The light is a ‘fill-in’ light and excellent for shadows or eliminating them as you can switch on the left or right of the lens as well as both. Well worth the small price.


To me the flower buds have an alien face look to them… little green heads with magenta atennas/hair and big yellow mouths.
