Maybe this could be the cause of the decline in insect species, "collectors." However, I doubt it. When fly fishing for trout here in the mountains, I sometimes take sample specimens of aquatic insect nymphs. This one preserved in nothing more than rubbing alcohol in a small glass vial. Smile





Both images: Canon EOS 7D w/Sigma f/2.8 EX DG 105 mm macro @ 1:2 w/Canon 250D close up lens. F/16 @ 1/60 sec. ISO 640 Illumination 60W daylight LED.

Lovely!

These strike me as having almost a "cartoonish" character to them, as if a talented artist had set out to illustrate by painting what bug-in-a-bottle might look like.

I'm not sure why I'm getting this impression. It may be due to the absence of specular reflections from the surface of the bug.

This was illuminated by a daylight LED flood that is equivalent in brightness to a regular 60W household light bulb, maybe that could explain the appearance. Actually I like the results the LED illumination gives to the subject, I wasn't expecting it. Thanks Rik Smile
