Pentatomidae eggs.

Post by Darionett »

Hello dear ones, today I offer you two shots of the same subject 3 days apart. It is an oviposition of Pentatomidae on almond shell. The shot was taken with Nikon D7100, Mitutoyo M Plan Apo 5X Clone; ITL200 Clone, in conformation as represented on
The photos were post-processed on camera raw to adjust the exposure and increase the detail slightly.
One photo was taken with continuous LED light, 4" of exposure, another with flash at 1/250s, I'll let you figure out which of the two was taken with one light source or the other :)

Those are very nice images. The vibrancy works really well with the subjects too. Everything looks pleasantly "fresh and clean" :)

I don't know which is which, but both are very well done. A great idea to really look close at these eggs, too.

They are gorgeous and nicely thought out shots. The vibrant opsins in the eye spots are really gorgeous. Ontogeny happens in secret in mammals, fortunately you have a very obliging subject.
