So, newtoyou, are you going to get on SqBear's ass about BigMike1's post like you did with me?


Somehow you have a wrong idea. I was commenting (agreeing?) on your post about the bigmike post. I thought that post out of line and unnecessary.
Wasn't my business, guess I should have not shared my opinion?

These are nicely done. They are intricate creatures, to say the least. Wing veination is fascinating, as Spock would say.

An excellent image! The colors and form of this beetle will hold up well. It won't appreciably fade or shrivel up, so you will have plenty of opportunities to experiment.
My only suggestion is to try to absolutely surround the beetle in an enclosure with strong but not overblown light and strong reflected light. Any appreciable gap in this will result in dark areas. I am sure you know that there are people who even put white reflective paper or foil around the face of the lens, excepting for the glass surface. Another method is to put specimens inside a ping-pong ball, with the lens inserted into a small opening in the ball and the lights shine on the ball from the outside & in various directions. I expect that both of these methods can be done together in order to really surround the subject.
The beetle is a bit too large for a regular ping pong ball but there are giant ping pong balls that you can get on Amazon (about the size of a tennis ball, I think). Anyway, it is something to consider.

Are these true colors?
Meaning pigment, or refractive colors?
I think refracted, because,as you said, the color is quite fast.
Regardless, they are pretty, pretty nasty tasting, too.
Give one to a toad. The faces they make🤣🤣.

This is a vividly colored and highly reflective beetle that I came across yesterday in my search for photo opportunities. There were quite many of them and I brought one back for a focus stacked session.

Highly reflective subjects are quite a challenge with the intensity of light that reflects off of them. Like a jewel, the colors flip and flop based on how the light strikes them. The camera's exposure meter is of little help so there is quite a bit of trial and error with test shots. This is about as good as I could do with all things given.

As always, thanks in advance to all who view and for your comments, suggestions and critique.

Up to your usual level of work.
It is funny, but once one person posts then many will find the same subject. Happens in three's.
This is a Dogbane Leaf Beetle. They are emerging across the US.
They feed on their namesake, Dogbane, on Indian Hemp and on milkweed. So they are toxic and noxious.
Good that you are out and about, Gary.
Tried a balance on my camera. I will just bow to age and use a tripod.
Just have to get in the habit and carry one.

Digital High Definition 0.45 Super Wide Angle Lens with Macro – Japan Optics
The Macro screws on and off the lens and Super Wide screws onto a lens.
The front of the lens is 65mm and the rear of the Macro is 52mm. With velvet pouch. Pouch has a label of Nikon, but I do not believe the lens is Nikon.

2x NT AutoTelePlus (I’m sure this is a Nikon). Ebay listed same lens for $15-$19.

3x NT AutoTelePlus (I’m sure this is a Nikon). Ebay has listed same lens for $20-$25.

Nikon PK-13 – 27.5 Lens Extender. Ebay had two, one $8 and other $10.

PM me if you have questions. Don’t know that I will be able to answer, who, what, when, where and why but I will try or send additional photos of either pieces.
Make an offer on one or all. Each is plus shipping in the USA

Thanks
SqBear
Digital High Definition 0.45 Super Wide Angle Lens... (show quote)


It really is not rocket science.
I see no reason to malign the poster.
The first two are a wide angle/macro lens. The base is a 2x diopter, screw the second piece on and it is a .45,x wide angle.
The next three are a 2x And a 3x extenders, go between camera and lens.
The last two are simply tubes.
Does their use need explanation?
I would add that this is all probably for film cameras.
Thank you EDJO307. Some people get realy grumpy as they age, don't they?

Again, think of this as a Merkin and it makes more sense.

Shaving pubic hair has been 'A Thing' for a vary long time. It comes and goes. The subject can be interesting!


Actually for over three hundred years. And the Merkin for years. Iice control. Shaved head and wigs popular at same era.

I beg to differ. As one responder wrote, you apparently didn't attend many Frat parties in college. Also I have it on good authority, from a man who was a POW during WWII, the ignition of flatus (farts) was a source of entertainment for the POWs while incarcerated.

Also I witnessed numerouis military serviceMEN doing the same while I was in the military.


I know few red blooded guys that have not lit a fart. Mojo Nixon has a song in that honor. Frank Zappa brings it up in the Real Frank Zappa book.
It is not hard. Tension, compression, ignition.😀😀

I have only 3 pretty Plattys and one small catfish who hides behind a plant. I have collected mosquito larvae from our wildlife pond, washed them and added them to my tank which is only 50 litres. The fish go mad for them.


They are easily collected. A few tin cans half full of water and a pinch of grass thatch set out in the garden. The mosquitoes produce a few hundred larva in one can every two weeks or so.
Very prolific.

Remember in Day 008, there were images of KNOX doing the contractor girl sexy on the roof? This is the image created to promote the Meet Up 'Contractor Girl'.
Huba-huba! Women as contractors, power tools, covered with saw dust, a little sweaty, heavy leather tool belts with hammers. They dress so not like men in he hot Texas sun!


I was in house construction. We hired a few females. Some would have more ass covered, but otherwise dress similarly. That effected my bonus.
NOTHING got done. My job to tell her.☹️🙁😢

And fine shot, sir

Yuk, I don't like worms like that but lucky for your Sunfish. My little fish are enjoying mosquito larvae at the moment.


Do your fish look like drab guppies? I have Gambusia afinis.
This is a live-bearer. You can see the modification in the male anal fin.
It is to internally enseminate, rare in fish.
That is also what is keeping the mosquitoes down at the restoration.
These work. Few Wiggler's in water. Dragonflies get the adults.
I get relief of bites.

The remains of a Mexican Restaurant in Bristol, TN!
'Had to have been one heck of a Taco to cause this!'
Not really sure what happened....caught our eye as we
were driving by so couldn't resist!


Any chance the building is simply being demolished?
