The creature you see on this photo is not an insect or some kind of other organism anymore. This is an empty space, someone's broken spacesuit, not the working exoskeleton of a bug. Its previous owner threw it away as if it was a piece of trash and it fell to Earth like some translucent space invader. I can't say that I felt happy about this, like most people I'd actually prefer to find something else, something a little more interesting, perhaps someone's home, a shell or perhaps even an empty nest of wasps, something the owners don't need anymore. But than I decided to take it home and try to look at it in a different way. I was impressed with the mechanism I saw through my lens and all off the amazing details. So this is why I'm posting it today, just to show you how amazing this kind of tiny trash can be.
I used an old SMC Takumar 200mm f-4, which was made in 1982, and a retro lens Zenitar-M 1,7-50, made in 1982, as one lens, to create this image.
