See how long my body is...


See how long my body is..., originally uploaded by nicklwc.

I love damselflies :) They are so cute and thin and small and fragile. Such lovely creatures. They are carnivores though. Not so cute when they are busy eating up other insects.

Taken with Nikon D90 and 105mm.

Nicholas,

Was a Macro Ring or a Twin Lite or hotshoe flash used for this shot?

@shimworld hey I used the Nikon's R1C1 Macro kit for the shot.

Basically two SU-200 flashes at the side of the lens fired.
