When I showed this frame of a Long Horned Beetle to my sister in law she said it looked like a teddy bear.
Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (@5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
Technique: This one is really simple -it was just early in the morning and the beetle was lethargic, temperature around 16C. As always I'm looking for a magic angle that makes the most out of what little depth there is at high magnification.
