If you see it protruding from the rear of the abdoment then you are in trouble- they only extend it if they are going to use it AFAIK

Yes, quite beautiful coming and going. Though what, may I ask, does Her Majesty have between her mandables? Looks like an ant or some other unfortunate beastie.

Thanks for looking and commenting everybody - much appreciated

Zemlin - was using a 430Ex flash as main light source but suspect there is a fair amount of natural light in these as well.

Ken -Nothing in the mandibles- that's her tasting bits.

superb Brian, does look like a lot of light reaching the background, is that why there is a lack of eye detail? less flash output?

Thanks Phil

No there is pretty good eye detail showing in the original - been lost on size reduction. Interestingly I was playing with levels and found that the eyes of these things do have markings on them - dark blotches on a brownish background .
