Dance Of The Mantis by SAMLIM Dance Of The Mantis by SAMLIM
' Dance Of The Mantis ...'

....anyone love Macro photography ?

Here's one of my Macro skills on Mantis in action.

Good Macro photography needs understanding first
the habitat of each insect .
There's certain time each insect at thier best moment....
some more active after rainny days...sunny day...morning...etc...

Second step study the location lighting & lenses we going to use.
Some fine white & silver foil is good for reflector job....which can bring more detail in side or backlighting photography.

Finally, composition & creative presentation gurantee
makes your results unique than others never done before.

.....just my test pratical on free personal Sunday photo outing in Penang......

I feel like the mantis is a ringmaster about to announce something glorious.
