A close look at the true bug Hypselonotus. I found a large groups of these on a particular plant in our orchard. Other documentation out there says that these type of bugs are sap suckers but from this footage you can clearly see that these ones are feeding on the nectar produced by tiny flowers.

I used a Minolta MD 50mm macro lens with and without the extension and for a few shots also using the magic lantern cropped video mode.
