My artificial island made for insect macro shoots
I made this micro-island from plastic, sand, rocks and seashells and I put on it various insects. A photo studio for these tiny "models".
Is very comfortable to shoot on this island, I can rotate it for good angle. This video show the moment when I put a can full of caterpillars over the spider, a really assault from the sky :)
Around the island is water, as you can see the caterpillars can swim but the spider was keept at place to do the web. I have another video with the spider and the web. The female spiders from photos bellow got babies on this island :) Her body is so big because she was pregnant.
I will put more videos on my blog: http://alveraphoto.blogspot.com/
