Up Close - 抜殻

Nelson, New Zealand

Panasonic Lumix GX1
Tamron SP MF 500mm F8 Reflex (55B)
F8, 1/125, ISO-160

I found this cicada shell in garden.  Instead of using macro lens, I grabbed this mirror lens.  it was surprisingly well balanced.    I used tripod because it was bit windy for this kind of shot to do with handhold especially with 1000mm/F8 equivalent to 35mm full flame.
GX1 + $20 mount adapter + Tamron SP 500mm (reflex) 
[PS: 8/Feb]: Oh and forgot to say that I was shooting about 2m (or less) away from the subject.
