Cédric Bloch's picture

Predator's Eyes

I found this Hornet in the garden and took it inside for a quick photoshoot. First I had to let it cool down in the fridge so that it wouldn't fly away or sting me. All in all i've used 6 Images @ f/11 (focusstacking) to get everything in Focus.
The Background is actually a fly (flyfishing) with a lot of holographic Flash in it. For the lighting I mainly used a ringflash and a additional speedlight to light the Background and the upper part of the hornet's face.
