Wet Reflection (Rd. 2)
Lens: Rodenstock Rodagon 85/4 Camera: Pentax K30 

Personal theme: Wet Reflections



As you can see on the photo, this little critter has a droplet of water on its head and it seems to have a wet flower inside due to the reflections from the yellow sparkling background.
I may not be able to push thru the next round, but this shot really makes me proud! <3

I am not a fan of macro but this is a beautiful photo. Looks like a monster guarding a pile of rubies.

Thank you. Yes the critter is still alive but temporarily disabled its movement by freezing it for 5 minutes

Thank you Sir! I learned this setup from two GREAT different macro shooters (both are Pentaxians). I just modified it using cheap materials while achieving the same effect. Hope that helps to beginning macro shooters...
