More Tiny Critters

Spring is still taking its time, so more searching under leaves and logs for tiny critters. This time at Ramsdown nature reserve and with a new flash set up in an attempt to diffuse the light and retain more detail in the subject, particularly around the eyes.

The set up. Twin flash heads on top of 2 Cokin P hoods that attach to a P holder fitted to the lens, with a folded piece of vellum placed between the twin flash heads and the top of the P holder.

Globular Springtail (Order Symphypleona)
