I'm curious as to the photo gear used for these.Feb 15, 2011 at 2:44 pm #1697037

"Other Button" click on the photos.
Scroll down to Properties.
Oh, and just for fun, click on Map Link.
Edit: I have been reminded that I have a FireFox Add-On that allows viewing the EXIF data. So, this probably won't work for you unless you have a similar "option".Feb 15, 2011 at 2:46 pm #1697038

Wow! These are beautiful! I especially love the hermit crab and whatever insect that is sitting on rock. National Geographic should be calling you.Feb 15, 2011 at 3:36 pm #1697057

I love how in the description of a Latin American photo essay the word "petite" is used haha.Feb 15, 2011 at 3:37 pm #1697058
Sorry to be a bother but… the right-click->properties thing only shows the image size, no other info, on both IE and Firefox (the Firefox equivilant is "View Image Info") on PC.
Unless I'm doing something wrong?Feb 15, 2011 at 3:45 pm #1697064

I forgot I've got the FxIF Add-On.
(FYI – Panasonic TS1, usually at 28mm.)Feb 15, 2011 at 8:24 pm #1697208
Really enjoyed that. Thanks for sharing. I'm gonna try to start taking a few photos on the trail this year. This was inspiring.Feb 15, 2011 at 9:12 pm #1697228

So the pics are superb, thanks a million for sharing! That caterpillar is weird!!!
And I just sent the FxIF add-on info to a photog friend with whom I will be doing the JMT with this summer – he will be psyched as heck about this!!Feb 16, 2011 at 10:35 am #1697405
Wow. I'm really impressed by that tiny folded lens. I'm guessing it's stronger in macros than other use, but still, I thought this was SLR stuff for sure.
Composition and lighting are great.Feb 17, 2011 at 9:17 am #1697820

The critter in the photo taken at Foz do Iguaçu is an assassin bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Reduviidae) in the genus Arilus. Learn more here.Feb 19, 2011 at 5:45 am #1698679

Thanks for posting that link about the assassin bug Kristin. As I looked at the page, I thought Wow that looks really familiar and when I read Hillary's request I couldn't stop chuckling. How nice to have a world-wide support system that gives you quick answers!!!
Thank you both for the fantastic photos of really cool small stuff!

The assassin bug is also commonly called a Kissing bug. One thing I didn't see mentioned on the link is that they can be a vector for Chagas disease, one of the most widespread and devastating infectious diseases in Central and South America.Feb 22, 2011 at 7:44 pm #1700249

Kristin and Danny, absolutely beautiful photos and most interesting subjects. Which make/model camera/lens were you shooting with, and did you use a tripod?Mar 4, 2011 at 3:47 pm #1704541

You might laugh, or cry. But the camera I used is the Panasonic TS1. It's Panasonic's first waterproof/crushproof/dustproof camera that I bought in June 2009. My tripod is the Joby Gorillapod. And the only additional equipment I have is a second battery.
