Multi-Legged Critters (8 photos)
5

These were shot with the Pentax F 100mm F2.8, 3 extension tubes, a circular polarizer on the lens and a circular polarizer on the flash. They were shot at 1:1 and 2:1 magnifications, some were cropped. I found at 1:1 the flash (Metz 58AF-2) could produce enough light to maintain a decent ISO, however by the time I went to 2:1 it just couldn't produce enough light to stop the ISOs from being rather high.

The picture was to be of the flower, after I shot it I realized there was an aphid in the center
