Ants and Aphids, Backlit

Ants and aphids on a mango tree. These ants are translucent, so tried lighting them from behind.

 

Tammy 90mm, ISO 200, f/22, 1/200s, manual exposure.

 

Strobist information: Vivitar 285HV on top-left, a little behind the stem to get the back-lighting effect. Used a paper reflector on the flash. Manual power - 1/4.
