moth - macro


Close-up photo of the head of a small moth.­ This is the kind of common insect that you wouldn't pay any attention to, but if you look at them with a huge magnification, they look fierce and mysterious!

Photo taken in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo)

I took this photo using an inverted lens (also called "poor man's macro"), and I used stacked focus from two exposures, to increase the depth of field, which is extremely short with this type of macro lens.­
