Genus Oligachaeta Ieiunium - A Photographic Challenge.

Earthworm Photography is one of the rapidly rising subjects of wildlife photography today. The common earthworm is a placid creature, slowly moving from place to place, eating dirt; however there is one subspecies Oligochaeta ieiunium that has never been photographed by professional wildlife photographers to this day. That is because this speedy little specimen has never been able to sit still long enough to be photographed.

It is required that you have at least a D4 and a very, very fast lens, such as a 200mm f/2 VR with an extension tube and you will have to shoot at f/2 to obtain the speeds necessary to capture this absolute freak of Oligochaeta nature.

I have been challenged to capture this little creature. However all of my attempts have ended up in dismal failure, I'm sorry to say.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to defer my attempts to others with much better equipment than I have.

Happy Shooting
