|This transparency was shot several years ago, probably on Fuji film. I would have used my OM2n or OM4 with the 38mm auto bellows lens, used on an extension tube. TTL flash would have been used.
Copied via E-P2, Elmarit 60mm macro and using T32 flash onto a white surface behing the OM slide copier.

All adults of the vine weevil are females and each lays hundreds of eggs and the larvae cause severe damage to the roots of cultivated plants.
Happiness is having the right adapter.
