Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in the lawn. I'm an amateur photographer with limited time and money. So when I wanted a back-lit insect-on-grass picture, I simply stopped mowing the lawn. It took about three weeks, but it was worth it :).
Time
The neighbours have a tall tree that engulfs my garden in shadow after eight. For this picture there was about a ten minute window where the setting sun hit the grass. Golden hour is always special time, no matter where you are.
Lighting
I used no artificial lighting whatsoever. Just a weevil, a camera and myself :).
Equipment
Nothing beyond my old Nikon and 90m Tamron macro lens.
Inspiration
Other back-lit shot of grass.
Editing
Nothing worth mentioning, I'm lazy.
In my camera bag
My old camera and two lenses, one macro and one 50mm.
Feedback
Be prepared, as the golden light only lasts a short time.
