Alien in the garden
Lens: 50mm f1.7 Camera: KS-2 
Posted By: Wbwhit, 08-11-2018, 10:29 AM

Noticed this little guy while walking the dog. Looks like some kind of Ambush bug species (Phymata sp). Shot with a reversed 50mm on a full set of 13, 21, 31mm tubes. F16 with my yn585ex flash (I really need to get around to making a diffuser for it).

And for some perspective, that is the tip of my index finger.

They certainly are well camouflaged - good catch.
