'kay, so be warned: I'm absolutely horrible with arthropod photography, so I'm starting to try and work on that. I think I really need an external flash, but the onboard one with a DIY diffuser seems to work decently. Also experimenting with lens stacking, but that's difficult given most critters won't let me get the lens within an inch of them to focus. I am hoping that having this thread will encourage me to get out more and play with it some, learn maybe a smidgen of what the heck I'm doing out there. If anyone has tips for this stuff, please do share. Anyway, on with today's subjects.
