Treehopper Hand Sanitizer, U, side, Dominican Republic

close up of image

Detailed Description

Unknown species of Treehopper collected in the Dominican Republic and suspended in Hand Sanitizer for this shot. The HS allows us to float the specimen how we like, but the high refraction index of HS means we loose a lot of surface detail due to loss of reflectivity. On the other hand it often adds a smoothing and saturation effect to the photo. Can't go wrong when taking a picture of a treehopper.Photographed in a cuvette by Ben Walsh-MellettCanon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash, link to a .pdf of our set up is located in our profile
