Macro Dragonfly Wing – Using Lightbox & 50mm 1.4 Lens In Reverse

“Dragonfly Wing – Abstract”

I had originally posted this in the old blog journal, and during the transfer over to WordPress, I must have lost it.
This image was created using the Canon 100mm macro, extension tube, and the Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens attached in reverse.
I put this dragonfly wing on a old lightbox, which helped to illuminate and somewhat enhance the details found within the wing.
I also used a tripod and macro slider, which is a must for this type of shot.

Thanks for looking gang!
