Green stink bug
Macro photography is an easy way to demonstrate “depth of field” sometimes also referred to as “depth of focus” where the plane of focus is isolated.  Here you can clearly see on the twig on the right of the image how shallow the area in focus. DOF is determined by distance to subject, lens aperture, and lens focal length. This little green stink bug was photographed at  f6.7 at 1/500 second about six inches away using a AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D on a Nikon D610.
