November photo contest: Pick of the day

Categories: Community

For our November photo contest, we're asking for your best macro photography shots. Today's pick of the day comes courtesy of CBC Community member debopp, who snapped a shot of this great black wasp in Guelph, Ont.

"These wasps were all over my Sea Lavender in the garden and they are huge!," debopp says of the picture.

The incredible detail achieved in the photo got the members of CBC's Multimedia Team buzzing. Producer Tim Neesam was particularly excited by the shot:

"Beautiful!  Great composition, great colours and big wow for the closeup detail. Not only do you see the head and body close up, you also get just the right amount of flower in detail. And you can see the pollen clinging to the insect's body!  Because there's a shallow depth of field, the background is nicely blurred out, allowing us to concentrate on what's front-and-centre.  Nicely done!"

cbc-shop-220.jpgThe Community team is looking for your best macro shots and the Multimedia team will be on hand throughout the month to provide tips to help you capture that perfect picture.

There are more tips on macro photography in our Nov. 3 pick of the day post.

The contest winner will receive a prize courtesy of the CBC Shop.
