The Awakening by SAMLIM The Awakening by SAMLIM
' The Awakening '

I use three unit of NIKON flash to capture this fast twist
and turn around caterpillar which looks like a peacock !

The detail 3-D are done by art of lighting control using
the wireless remote control Nikon Macro Falsh Kits
SU-800/SB-R200.
Manual hand shots without tripod using Nikon 105mm lens.

...another beauty of God's creations.

SPECTACULAR! This is really a beautiful piece. I was telling the friend who linked me to it that it looks like a Trinidad Carnival costume. You did an amazing job with the lighting. Instant fave.
