Mantis Maintenance

By
Technique: Sometimes the subject I'm shooting gets so use to me being close that it just goes about its business as if I'm not there. All I had to do is set the camera to under expose the natural light in the background, and I shaded the subject so that the flash was the only significant light source on the mantis (to freeze motion).

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 25mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, with the key on a Kaiser flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

I love the details of its mouth parts and the highlighted facets of those golden eyes. Beautifully captured! :clap:
