Guess What?

Ipis Up Close


The theme for Round Robin Challenge this week is "Guess What?" This picture was a very easy one to guess... I hoped to look for more interesting subjects that would make it difficult to guess, but this critter seemed to be a willing model, so I guess he would be my star for the week. :)

I was about to take out my plates and wash it when I saw this in the sink. I think the insecticide we sprayed worked on this fella that it was just still in the sink, and if it moved, it moved in a swirly manner, like a drunk person. I placed my plate in the counter and took my camera and started taking pictures. I needed to turn on the flash for this, because if I don't it won't look realistic due to low lighting. The red focus light tend to disturb the critter, but I guess the flash somehow blinded him a bit, and the next few shots turned out much better.

Of course, after I was satisfied with the images, I got a cup of water, poured it to the critter and drained him in the sink. :)

Nice detailed shot Jenn, he looks disgusting, unless of course you like inserts. You did well to light this with your A1000. Well done.

Have a great weekend.
