Macro Bugs -Technique Question
Dec 4, 2011

Hi Guys/Gals:

I've been admiring some wonderful macro shots of bugs over at 500px. I notice that many of them are coated by liquid bubbles, here's an example:

If anyone can explain here are some questions:

1) Is the photographer just misting the bugs with water?
2) How does the bug stay still long enough for the shot?

Any thoughts are appreciated!
