s100fs: 2 insects from south Italy
Both were taken using my Hoya macro filter (+4) and external flash with light bender. I have taken pictures of the same kind of grasshopper also last year, but now I have improved my skills in removing the color aberrations, so I would say this one is almost aberrationfree! (Unfortunately I have lost the raw files of the older pictures)
The picture of the buprestid beetle was taken in hurry. The background is really ugly, it's the floor of my bedroom. But I had no time to look for a better background!
The pictures at full resolution can be downloaded from my website.
