I experienced bitten by this insect . The female has short mandible but act like a scissor! view it here (note: picture taken using my hand phone). Sometime, I have to move my main object gently to get a proper background. After all, i put it back to it’s habitat. I always make sure that there is no harmful made.

All pictures below was taken using Canon 40D + Sigma lens 150 mm. Natural light and some more with help of my reflector.

My macro trip to Ranau, Sabah.

End of year 2013 is around the corner, so I decide to have a macro trip. I had scheduled it before actually. Normally I will go alone. But fortunately there were two of my friends also on their trip for macro. They were on their trip two nights early before me but then heading to KK because of “technical error”. One of my friend forgot to bring his camera’s battery charger. Ouchhh…. Then I met them here in KK. So now it was no longer considered as “My lonely macro trip” as usual. So, following are some of the stories 😉 :

Before heading to Ranau, two of my friends ask me to stop at Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu for shooting this mosque.
