Lasioglossum lilliputense, F, Back, WY, Teton County

Detailed Description

One of approximately 1 billions (actually it is nearly 2000) species of Lasioglossum in the world. This one is from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Interestingly, most of these species appear to be generalists so one wonders how they partition their tiny worlds. 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.
