Tree bugging

Yesterdays walk in the park resulted in a new little pet for our flat: A beautiful green tree bug. As we were walking, it landed on my shoulder. Not knowing that it was a photo-enthusiastic biologists shoulder it had landed on...

I took him home to our living room for a small session.

Here our little friend is posing on some green lettuce.
To get the lighting right, I used an external flash (Canon 430EX II with Cactus V duo radiotriggers). A Canon 60mm Macro was used to get up close.  
Shot at 1/250 sek, f/9.0, ISO 320.

The flipside of the bug was revealed by placing the mirror taken from our bathroom. I was quite surprised how cool this actually came out :-)

A little update on our son Storm, now 4 months old. To you he may look like a little baby, but to us...every time we see him we get so surprised that our tiny newborn is getting THIS big.

We shoot loads of pics (some of them end up here lille-storm.blogspot.dk), and luckily, our boy is a right poser :-)

All shots were taken with the great Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens at f/2.8 and a shutterspeed around 1/50-1/80. The only light source is window light from our kitchen window, I pulled the ISO up to 640.
