Beautiful image.It really shows off the mandibular details and the compound eyes look almost unreal. What a cute face.

Just a curiosity. Was the critter alive when you took this or preserved.

I'm just curious about macro methods.

Your work is amazing! If I may ask, how are you using the SB-800? On camera? Any attachments?
Thanks,
Pete

Thanks :)

I used synchronisation cable and put the SB-800 and home made diffuser on tripod, to get more light from the upper side. I got additional light from the left-, right side and bottom by bouncing it from the pieces of aluminium foil.
