Congrats Ray! And what a wonderful photo this is, as well as the others that were accepted. Well deserved. I am curious what set-up you used for this one, are you willing to share your secrets?

Rense,

No problem sharing, this was taken with a K100D with ISO set at 200, shutter speed of 1/180th of a second, 72mm of extension tubes, JC Penney 135mm f2.8 (Kiron k-mount) lens at f11 (f22 effective due to the loss of light using the extension tubes) with the on-camera flash providing additional light.

Glad to see you liked it.

It's a good result Ray.
Tough capture to get right.
Well done.

Thank you, I have been very fortunate with the results I have been getting lately on my MACRO work. Practice really does make a big difference.
