You do some STUNNING photos! I love your blog...what kind of lens are you using to get such great detail on such small objects?
I especially like your wildlife camera set-ups, and I would love to hear more about them such as what kind of camera you use, (is it an SLR? )and how you found out how to hack the camera and what kind of set-up you use. Thanks for your time, and keep up the great work! :)

Looks so much like fish roe. Could be Herring roe if it were just a bit more orange. Or flying fish.

Pete -

Thanks! You have a lot of questions i can't quite answer in a comment. I will make a note to try and include a bit more technical info in the future.

For this shot I used a 19mm micro lens on along bellows, and stacked 23 exposures for a final image.

That is exactly what I was thinking. fish eggs. I wish I could get even more magnification....
