Female Jagged Ambush Bug
This is not the first Jagged Ambush Bug I have seen this season. She is the closest one to the house and within a short walk. This Ambush Bug was imaged on a Queen Anne's Lace flower in rural upstate Columbia County, New York, USA. This is a 2:1 macro, at the sensor. 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 KA Mount on Pentax K20D Camera, hand held, manually focused, Shake Reduction set to 200mm, ISO 400, f8 on lens, 1/90 sec, with fill-in flash from camera's built-in electronic flash. This is a full resolution Large JPEG and has not been cropped or resized. This image was edited in Aviary where I tweaked the brightness, contrast, and sharpness.
