This is a full sized image. NOT a crop in any way… All the pieces and parts fit into the frame. That means it’s a full sized 43 meg .jpg and will print high resolution in large sizes. Relevant since we are actively working on getting my portfolio on line for sale and bigger files are better.
The antennas, the claws and the tail all fit in the frame, click on the image to see all of it. FB doesn’t handle 16:9 ratio photos well.
Taken by hand held camera, precise positioning is hit or miss as at this high magnification, you can see your heart beat by the motion of the camera. I don’t care how steady you are. I’d done precision shooting of both cameras and long range firearms for decades. Lucky to get this…… Should have stepped back, use a lower mag, refocus and click…Easy but you crop the image and loose information (file size).
This guy was on the “move” all the time not appreciating the “big eye” 10 inches from it’s face.
