[...] Myrmecos blog had some nice things to say about my natural light style of photography. Thanks Alex! Alex Wild studies biological diversity at the University of Illinois. His Myrmecos blog is a great source of information about insects and the life of scientist. He is a wonderful photographer, and shares great tips on photographing small creatures. Every Friday he blogs about beetles, today’s is on the fiery searcher, Calosoma scrutator. [Translate] [...]
