I have a small garden and although I am trying to make it more interesting (winter flowers etc). I don't get many new insects. Here is a small beetle that I saw for the first time the other day.
Tachyporus 3.36 Magnification size 3.4mm
Tachyporus by davholla2002, on Flickr.
Sadly a bit of reflection on it, I need to get some polystyrene in front of my speedlite to try to deal with this.

Nice catch. That is an interesting looking beetle. Where in your garden did you find it? Just wandering about or under leaves or something?

Under some old newspaper I had thrown out to create a place for creatures to hide under (it was too messy to recycle).

Something as simple as a paper towel of Kleenex will work for a diffuser.

Also, I think you could reduce the effect of the flare on that image just by playing with levels and contrast and maybe white-balancing in post-processing. For example (I hope you don't mind my playing with your image; if you prefer I'll remove it):


Of course this has reduced dynamic range and some noise; best to fix problems in the lighting before rather than after taking the picture, but you do have some room to play in post-processing.[/img]
