Boo VIII by CIBS Boo VIII by CIBS
I dont know what insect this is.. its the same as the previous one (identical in body shape) but different colours and shell. It was kind enough to let me take a few portrait shots (after some persuasion with an umbrella coz it on was the ceiling). Now its on a couch.

f/5.0
1/160th sec
flash bounce 60 degrees from the left
100mm

Whoa, I swear I will get around to finding out what this is. And then I will post again. Until then it's added to my favourites.

David this thing is really impressive. It is intimidating and looks really strong for its size. I love the lighting. All those little details show so well and I love the gradient effect of the negative space. It really works well with the subject.

*shudders* Very nice shot, David. Do you mean this thing is in your house? I like taking pictures of bugs, but don't think I could ever sleep with one of these in the house.

I would give anything for a camera that powerful. I can see the facets in it's eyes! Superb!
