Taking a break from a session in a local park I settled at a decrepit picnic table in need of replacement when I spotted some strange movement of I knew not what moving in and out of a rotting away seam in the table and this is what I found when I examined them through my Nikon. They were a very small variety, but having discovered them I was determined to photograph them. I literally, quickly set up a mini studio.
Nikon F5, Micro Nikkor 200mm F/4 with +7 Diopter close up lens. Fuji Velvia Film.
a Bogen Table top tripod with a Manfrotto 3422 head modified by me to take a bit more load, topped it off with a Kirk Enterprises Arca Swiss Clamp, mounted my Nikon F5 with Nikon's Micro Nikkor 200mm F/4 with Century Precision's +7 Achromatic Diopter via a step down ring, my Nikon SB 26 flash off camera with a white plastic sheet in front to act as merely a bit of fill flash and to provide eye high lights. It was anchored to the table with a short section of threaded 1/4 inch rod force fit into a crack between boards. The table was spot metered to determine exposure. Then came the wait for the creatures to reappear. They obliged and the shooting began, all manual focus.
