Lately I've become interested in water pennies, though I can't say why. Is a water penny nymph fly in my future?

Anyway, I took this picture today. It is a live specimen that I collected from Trout Creek, which flows into the Cannonsville Reservoir / West Branch of the Delaware river in New York in October 2013. It's current home is a 2 gallon aquarium it shares with some common stoneflies. I used a 50mm macro lens on a Cannon EOS camera with brown felt as the background. I made a special "V" shaped micro aquarium for it so that it would attach to the side wall and not the bottom so that I could get this picture.



Perhaps I'll be able to rear some adults!

Thank you.

I'm really just a beginner at macro photography. As I get some reasonable quality pics, I'll be sure to share.
