Detailed Description

Chilimalopsis parvula - according to Laurence Packer (world's expert on the bees of Chile) this is a range extension of this species, mapped specimens seem to indicate that it mostly have been captured well to the north of Santiago and we spent all our time to the South on the expedition. Anders Croft took the pictures. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200 USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
