Sorry for the long silence. Just realized that I haven't posted in 3 months!

Some really great, iconic shots there.
Is it same flash as your macro rigs, or something bigger?

Thanks Paul, Keith, Chris.

Chris - sorry, I should update the info in my macro rig: diffused 270EX on hotshoe! My MT24 and MPE65 have been sitting in the drybox for years!

Great set. Snakes we have here, if you can even find them are not so colorful and vibrant. Lucky you can capture them like this!


Thanks -
Justin
