    Return of the Scorpion

    I'm back with another scorpion shot. I was going for a better "pose" this time. I'm not terribly happy with the dual shadows in the background. He is a testy little bugger though, and I only have a limited amount of time to work while he sits still. He is deceptively quick once he decides to run.



    Thanks for looking,
    -Brandon

    Blindeye,

    Are you using a twin flash macro setup?

    Kgosden;
    Yep, it is only about 2" long out about 15'. I was standing right at the verge, getting toes wet.

    Yes. I'm using the Canon MT-24EX on camera, and a 430EX on a light stand above and to the rear to fill in the background. In retrospect, I should have increased the 430EX output by one stop. I think that would have successfully killed the shadows. Next time.

    Falconest, I went hunting for your prey today. I managed to find a few that would sit for me, but this common whitetail was rather jumpy. Probably because the water in his pond was low and there was a lot of competition.

    whitetails are ALWAYS jumpy, they never set for more than a few seconds in warmer weather.
    It is getting late for d'flies here all I have seen in the last several days are Whitetails, Widow Skimmers and some Twelve-spot Skimmers, a Halloween Pennant, and a few Blue guys that have completely colorless wings except for a small 'winglight' patch on each wing.

    I have been trying to get a decent shot of these Zebra Longwings for a while. They are very fluttery and rarely sit on a flower without flapping constantly.

    Red dragons

    Here is a new species to me, bright red Dragonflies, a mating pair.
    2 shots.
    I also got some quite good in-flight shots of a yellow one one of which I will post in the Nikon forum.
    After this wekend we might not bee seeing to many more around here with the possible disruption by Hurricane Irenes' winds and rain.
