    face of a sow bug (photo)

    Hi all,

    I posted this photo on my blog last night--a highly magnified picture of a common sow bug or woodlouse (order Isopoda).—along with a brief explanation of how I did it.

    More discussion will follow in the next couple of posts...but this was just so cool I had to share it!

    Cheers

    I found the sow bug dead on the sidewalk as I came home and decided it was time to break out the serious equipment and play. The results were way better than expected. The eyes of this critter are way cool, and I had no idea they were covered in tiny spines.

    I have a lot to learn with this technique...and figuring out how to shoot living critters will be a challenge. Its going to be fun!

    "No critters were killed in the making of this photograph!"

    CO2 is often used to stun small critters for macro photography.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
