'The Ugly Bugs Ball'

By briantjjones
A Macro shot of a number of Greenfly who had taken residence on a delphilium plant in the garden. I was trying to get so side light from a very bright sun but trying to try and show how translucient the bugs are but without getting too many highlights and blowing out the highlighted areas. I used Lightroom 5 to add some contrast and did a selective sharpen in CS5 on the two bugs nearest the camera. I was trying my 50mm F1.8 Canon Lens with a full set of Kenko tubes. It's the first time using this combination.
