The reversed Nikon 50mm helped me get close-focus- although not the best setup- the quality is decent.
I used the inexpensive 24-70mm 3.5-5.6 lens and Sigma EF-500 DG ST SA N flash.

I hope you guys like it.......it's a very rare exotic flower mantis from Malaysia.....my son breeds them for sale to other insect breeders.....it's only about 1/2 inch long at this stage but they grow a little larger.

Good dof there. I like it. Well done. It wouldn't look out of place as a cover for a sci-fi book.
