Had picked up this dead beetle during a field trip. With some free time on my hands, took this one out from the freezer.
Sorry if this bothers you. Personally I will never harm any of my subjects - becomes counter productive, but specimen shots is something I am ok with.
Shot with a Soligor 28mm f2.8 (thank you Ashok!), reversed in front of some ETs, the mm scale showed a magnification of 3:1
The "sweat" as it began to thaw out
Both single shots @ f11, yet to get my technique right to begin stacking
