Now that's a narrow depth of field, when you get the front half of an ant in focus and not the back half. How do you work with that? Handheld or tripod?
Thanks terse. With ants you definitely have to go handheld as they move a lot and are quite quick. When I shoot, I use an app called Halide and it has a focus peaking feature that displays the edges of things in green. When I get the part of the subject I want in focus, it's highlighted in green and I hit the shutter. The Moment Macro lens over the 2x Camera of my iPhone Xs Max gets in real close and the depth of field is, as you can see, very shallow.

It’s no good me waiting for sdimbour Sandra to post her black and whites here because she’s the judge!!!! So I’ll just declare this challenge CLOSED, and ask her to do just that. Whenever you have a moment Sandra. :thumbs:
