Detailed Description

Lovely in its hieroglyphic eyes and metallic chrome plating, this is a tiny little flower fly, just one of many insect models designed without us in mind. That said, it would make a lovely car design. Captured at a stream crossing in Beltsville, Maryland. 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.
