Very nice Henry!

Nice and sharp at the right place. I like the tilted white surface (although a bit dirty...). One thing that I miss though is some kind of 'eye-contact'. I think it is essential also for portraits of these ting fellows.

May I ask what close-up lens you used and also how the flash was arranged? I'm just curious.

Cheers, Jens.

Thanks Jens,

This one had quite small black eyes which were difficult to get in sight. I have some other pictures where they show, but I rate this whitish background to be best of the photos I took. Close-up lens was the triplet you discovered from sigma zoom. Cameras own flash extended with white paperboard and diffused with white material, styrofoam like but soft. Best regards Henry
