Macro Monday 20: a study in amber

Today is another paperweight, this time with amber swirls and lots of air bubbles in it.

This is really a mass of bubbles, but it sort of looks like some primordial creature leaping up from the ooze.





Re-entry in amber! I've got this lighted up with a red laser pointer.


 Here's what it looks like in real life during the shoot. Much of the time I had the camera lens right up against the glass. There is quite a bit of distance between the surface of the clear glass, and the swirl of amber glass. The camera doesn't really see the clear glass and so about 4 x mag without extension tubes was about the most I could get.
