Very nice composite, Gary! Did you pre-plan shooting for the composite, or figure it out later that you could make it work? I'm going to work on shooting to create some composites (probably cats rather than macro subjects, tho ). Gives me a lot of new subjects to shoot thinking about backgrounds separately and being able to add a subject (shot against a solid gray background) in later.

Whoops he "got" you C.J. I sort of suspected but then just enjoyed the shot !
LOL! What told you it was a composite, Palms?

The Insects themselves

I thought the probability of two different insects on the same leaf and both being still was a bit high

Very well worked out my little retouching detective, i'm so glad you couldn't find the seem where it was stitched together lol

Yes CJ i was looking at the macro's over at www.1x.com and came across many that made it up for publishing because they had two insects in the frame so i decided to do a few more of these.
When photographing i found if i move the camera back a little on an appropriate leaf or stem i can remove one and place another in a spot to left or right up or under using identical white balance settings and lighting set up - so it all gets a bit more exciting now he he!

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

One of the best sunsets I've ever seen, taken this evening near Victorville CA on the way home from Photoshop World/Vegas. My right hand held the camera up toward the right of the windshield while my left one drove the car... I zoomed wide and aimed the best I could while not hitting anything in front of me! Thankfully the camera focused well, the shot didn't blur but the batteries died just thereafter. But the show was ending anyway.

Meanwhile, this moon and cloud thing was going on on the other side of the car... Tougher to shoot cross-armed.

The shot with the cars in the foreground (which I like compositionally) was a littler bit earlier.

I really need a driver so I can concentrate on shooting! The late afternoon desert and sky are so beautiful. During the day, not so much.

A few more pix from my week in Vegas (more to come; it's late...). From left to right, Ron Paul (I think), Jay Maisel and Mother Nature (this explains the weather lately!).

I love Gary's skill with mantids and crickets, but I'll take looking at an adorable hedgehog over spiders and bugs any day! So they just wander about thru yards? One of the animals that don't exist here in the USA in the "wild" - just as pets or escaped pets.

yes they wander around, especially at this time of the year, unfortunately they are in decline in the wild so need some TLC, they love cat food
