Detailed Description

Back to posting ancient fulgorid specimens from the Natural History Museum at the Smithsonian. This one, Phrictus ocellatus, is similarly filthy, but cleaned up fairly well for its age...hope to one day take some fresh specimens. 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.
