The Armadillidiidae (Pill Bugs) that we have back in the Midwest are pretty small, but the ones at my Mother in law's farm are huge by comparison. I've wanted to photograph them for a while, but I wanted to shoot it from a low angle and finally had an opportunity when I found one late in the day that was active, but not hyperactive. I triggered its defense mechanism (touched it to get it to roll up into a ball) and placed it on an artificial flower. Would have been better to use one of Mom's roses, but I think she'd take exception to me cutting one and taking it to the "studio" :)

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (between 2x and 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
