Ant on Dandelion

This is a 2:1, at the sensor, macro of an ant feeding from a Dandelion flower. This scene was imaged in rural upstate Columbia County, New York, USA. There is good compound eye detail visible on the ant's face in the Original Size. For this image, I used my manual focus Tamron Adaptall-2 model 52BB SP 90mm f2.5 macro lens and Tamron Adaptall-2 18f 1:1 tube and Tamron Adaptall-2 01f 2X flat field teleconverter with attached Tamron Adaptall-2 Pentax K A mount on Pentax K20D camera, hand held at camera with end of lens resting on beanbag substitute (pair of winter gloves), manually focused, SR 180mm, ISO 400, f8 on lens, 1/90 sec., with fill-in flash from camera's built-in electronic flash. This is a Large JPEG and is Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) without and editing, adjustment, cropping, or re-sizing.
