Default High speed macro

Got out and did some real stop action macro shooting this morning. It was all I could do to get the motion stopped.

It should be no problem with Pentax's 1/10,000 sec shutter speed.

you dont need 1/10,000th to do animation of a snail, 1/10th is probably enough.

I do think that you still got some motion blur in the right 'whatever it is' on a snail.

Great title, and a strangely appealing shot
