Me and My Canon S5IS Mirrored on a Japanese Beetle by 

Canon S5 IS +4 macro filter
First Prize “Nature Photography Challenge Group” Challenge
Two features

As I was reviewing some shots I had taken of this Japanese Beetle, I noticed I was getting a pretty good reflection of me and my camera on his back. So, I decided to see just how clear a reflection I could get. This is the best shot.

My name is Ron Russell. I have lived in Newport, Kentucky since 1986.
My interest in photography as a hobby goes back to a Minolta camera I found in 1974.I love digital photgraphy because of the freedom it gives me to shoot whatever whenever I want. My Canon SX40 HS is a constant companion.
I’ll add a caption to any photo. Let me know what you want I’ll add it, upload and reply.
