In part because it&#039;s a cool looking insect, but mostly because it shows what my new camera, the Nikon D850, is capable of. Shooting from hand, it&#039;s nearly impossible to get a shot fully sharp and unmoved at the 100% pixel level due to 45.7MP sensor. And that&#039;s ok, because you normally wouldn&#039;t view an image zoomed in that far.<br />

But every once in a while you get lucky and nail it. This is one of such shots. Check out how much detail remains in the 100% crop:<br />

In other words, I can never really blame my gear for a failed shot. It&#039;s either me or the conditions :) Choco,Choc&oacute;,Colombia,Colombia Choco &amp; Pacific region,Fall,Geotagged,South America,Utria National Natural Park,Utr&iacute;a National Natural Park,World" /></a></figure> Choco,Chocó,Colombia,Colombia Choco & Pacific region,Fall,Geotagged,South America,Utria National Natural Park,Utría National Natural Park,World Click/tap to enlarge
