Collection: S.L. 0910 Thank you very much to S.Lloyd for samples.

Thank you. Yes, they are iridescent due to thin suface membranes.

Here's another similar species with a more ovoid form (thanks also to S.Lloyd)

Thank you very much indeed.

For low magnifications I use 2 x Trond LED panels, but for higher magnifications and iridescent subjects flash seems to work better (1 x Canon Speedlite 430EXII with circular paper diffuser around subject).

Thank you very much David and Sumguy01.

Here's another quick stereo from this week (a different but related sample/species.)
