Like the back lighting in this but again, it seems you need to crank up the flash a bit and stop down more for better DOF. Then again...I dunno, can't do much better myself most of the time. :D

I have seen these up here in New hampshire (or their northern Cousins). Rather large black jumpers with bright green fangs.....you always remember the fangs...the fangs....the fangs :shock: Sorta like a customized, tricked-out spider.
