MYN – Tramea carolina exuvia (face-head-dorsal)

A Carolina Saddlebags dragonfly (Tramea carolina) exuvia, collected by Andy Davidson near Richmond, Virginia USA, was photographed against a pure white background using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique. Carolina Saddlebags is a member of Family Libellulidae (Skimmers).

Tech Tips

The subject was “staged” on a clear plastic surface raised ~1.5 in (~3.81 cm) above the white background. As I speculated in my last blog post, increased distance between the stage and the background seems to have resulted in improved exposure of clear features such as the “eyes.”

    As you know, Walter, I love this face-to-face shots with dragonflies, and I feel the same way about exuviae. This is a wonderful image–your tweaking of the technique seems to be bearing fruit.
