Well it's been so long since I grabbed my gear I found I had forgotten how to use it! Here is Margaret -- a small jumping spider confiscated from my granddaughter's house. Canon Mark 7D Mark II, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, 1/100, 5.6, Auto ISO (400) Yongnuo YN24EX Macro Flash with diffusers flash compensation -1, manual focus, hand held. Comments for improvement or different scenarios appreciated. I know -- change the setting -- inside of a plastic lid is unbecoming!

Margaret is beautiful. What will become of her now that her modeling career is deemed nonessential? I hope she catches lots of bugs for you.

Margaret will continue to model for me -- I made her a small abode!

Good. I had the privilege of sharing my home with an orb-weaving spider that somehow ended up inside the house. Her name was Gwen. I took it hard when she died.

Congratulations to Margaret for catching such a large fly and also to you for getting these nice shots of her. May she enjoy her new abode.

Margaret is lovely, with fine eyelashes, and this is a great picture. I like the purple.
Like me, I see your twin flash leaves twin highlights. I have been wanting to find a convenient way to not have those. Am very open to ideas.

The only thing I can think of is to get rid of the twin flash and get a regular flash and build a soft box around it, like a tent.
