Hi Gang!

It has been a very long time since I have posted, and now I am finally
able to get back into my macro, as I have been SWAMPED with home
improvements, etc.

I am puzzled about this shot because I polarized the left-side light source
AND polarized the camera lens, and yet I am getting odd highlights.

In my viewfinder, I see all of the reflective areas disappear, yet they still
creep back into the stack.

Thoughts/suggestions welcome.

This queen was making her nest by my garage door and she was getting
a little too aggressive, so I signed her up for a nice portrait.

Notice the poison drop at the end of her stinger and the crest of an egg to
the right of her right front leg.



Mike

Hi there Pizzazz,
Great shot.
Could the difference in light be because you move your camera?

Nice light and details

Hi

Thanks for the info on the light moving I haven't had a chance to play with that but I'm just wondering about the effect.

As for my gradient on the background I used a black sheet of paper and some fiber optic light on it too get me my shift of color
