Clear for take-off by Lycosa-Jones Clear for take-off by Lycosa-Jones
I had a lot of fun photographing this little guy. In the end I managed to get just what I was after; the moment of lift off.

Clear for take-off by ~Lycosa-Jones - What an awesome action shot. Fantastic capture of the take off and the dark background gives a great contrast. Nice work, thanks for sharing ! ( Featured by hellfirediva )

Hi, great shot. I am just playing with macro photography at the moment. I love Stephen Dalton, and your work really reminds me of his. I assume you use high speed flash? What sort of set up do you use to achieve these results? I'd love to give it a go.

What an awesome shot! I am curious how you got such great depth of field. I also have a Canon 20D with a 100mm lens and I have never been able to get that much depth of field in any of my shots.
