Today was the second Google+ Photowalk and you would think I would be sharing a photo taken today but this has been a crazy weekend so instead I have loaded those pictures into Lightroom and I am posting a picture I took last night. With the warm weather there have been all kinds of insects out and I have been giving them a little cryo treatment in order to get a little additional cooperation. This guy, Mr. Goldblum, was a little more cooperative. I found him exploring on a lampshade so I put him in a little jar and transported him to my photo table near the studio strobes.
When I took the jar away he very happily groomed himself while I took his closeups. This isn't even a 100% crop, there is more detail in this photo and I struggled with what to remove from the image. It could have been a full-body shot but then you wouldn't have been able to appreciate the details. So after a few attempts I decided I like this head-and-shoulders shot the best :)
