    I could have done without the flash reflection on it's face, but I found this fellow, something from the Scarabaeidae family-I believe one of the numerous types of May Beetles-after dark, so it was either bring it indoors and shoot it with a flash so I could release it immediately or wait til tomorrow and shoot it under natural light. I chose the former option. Only to turn my back for a few minutes to have the thing get loose in the house. I was unable to locate it, so maybe I'll get a natural light opportunity after all if I find it tomorrow.

    Why did the ant cross the sidewalk? I don't know, but everyone else seemed to think it was a good idea! :D

    Caught this guy or gal hopping across the front of my pacman frog tank today. I thought "Photo op!" and scooped him up for a session.

    Juvenile Elaphe obselata I caught today. Feisty little guy only measured about 15 inches. Sometimes I wish they retained more of their juvenile pattern as adults. But on the other hand, they are pretty sleek with their black colouration as well.

    Had to dig a few pages to find This thread...Anyway, I got one today that I was rather pleased with, the model was very uncooperative, though.

    That's awesome Tim. I've never actually noticed all the detail on a grasshopper. The scaling on the rear set of legs is beautiful. I'm surprised that I've not noticed this thread before.

    Large Snake and Model

    Here is one of mine. Bella, the snake is an Albino Burmese Python that is 20 feet long and weighed in at 300 pounds.

    I am a pro level Photographer with cameras and lighting gear I have aquired over the past 30+ years of shooting. I am making a LED ringlight in a Canon ML-3 Ringlight housing. The housing mounts directly to Canon's macro lenses. It will have 108 LED putting out 50,000 mcd each. That calculates to 5.8 million mcds or about 2100 lumens which is about a 120 watt incandecsent bulb. I can turn on either side and have a total of 3.5 stops of light adjustment.


    I will post some of my other macro shots soon.

    Haha. I was trying to take pictures of him and he wouldn't stay still, he eventually ran onto my electronic dice I made in my shop class and stayed put. Ended up making a good background. I call that picture, "Circut Spider" lol.

    Heres a picture of a moth that was in my bathroom.
