_MG_7769 teleconverter 17 days

Added the 1.4x Tamron teleconverter to the Tamron 90mm macro lens. Picture wasn't ultra sharp. Used a lot of sharpening on the mantis. Background is darker than ambient light because of the shutter speed, negative flash compensation, and small aperture.

Canon EOS 20D
1/60s f/16.0 at 90.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Great shot, Isabel. You can see his eyes and I think the black background adds to the picture.
