looks more like an "Alien" in a candy store to me
Looks like a katydid, and it did a job on that flower. Nice capture.
Nice lighting you got on the bug....and a great action shot of him (her?) gorging on that sweet stuff! Care to share a bit on your lighting setup and how it works for you?
thanks for the comments guys,,
Derrel, I d be happy to, its a pretty simple setup with a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket, the flash is then diffused with a Lumiquest softbox. Its a fairly inexpensive way to get a very good macro lighting setup if you have a speedlite already./ ive been very happy with the results, this gets the flash up over the subject, shinning diffused light down over the siubject, here are a couple pics of my basic setup :mrgreen:
I love this photo! The colors, the crispness, the texture, and the translucence of the bug. I would also suggest upping your contrast a little because I think that would bring out your subject more.
ps- very creative title!
