    So... I ended up getting very bored at work and found this little guy decomposing next to my window. Shot taken with a Canon 50mm 2.5 compact macro. Shot at f/2.5, no cropping was done.

    poor guy ....

    Shooting a macro at f/2.5 has severely limited DOF and I would suggest stopping down a bit and adding some fill light. Composition, although a bit macabre, is interesting.

    Yeah, that's one thing I noticed was the minute DoF. I shot it hand held and it was quite difficult to get his entire body in focus. I'll probably step it down to 3.5 or so and see how that works, probably even smaller.

    I've found that I do most of my insect macros at ~ f/8 - 11
