Insect trap

 

In 2017 I decided to go for a different approach for capturing insects by building an insect trap to capture insects during flight. Unfortunately, I have not been able to test the set-up yet, as both 2017 and 2018 have been terrible years for photographing insects. I was having a hard enough time to find insects to take conventional macro photos of, and did not find a single spot with such a sufficiently large amount of insects that it would be suitable for testing this set-up.

So until the day comes when I can test my setup I can only show this photo of a fly which I accidentally captured in semi-flight and which inspired me to build the insect trap.
