#2 Close encounter

I took this a few weeks ago while photographing some White Oak seedlings. My wife has collected (rescued from the squirrels) about 20 acorns and started a small nursery in our back yard. I’ve been documenting their growth with a 6″ scale ruler. At the end of the shoot this amazing creature struck a pose directly in front of my macro lens. Nothing to do but focus, click and say thanks. Left side of the scale is metric; this guy being 7mm, head to wing tip. The light was from two bounced speedlights inside a small white box. Thanks to David Chung for showing me how to do this.
