    Yeah I love this as well. I know there was another photographer who loved to setup her bug collection in awesome little scenes and photograph them. I can't remember her name, but your set made me think of it.
    If I remember her name I'll let you know. You would love her work.

    I think I know how he did it.

    There should be something holding the umbrella for sure.
    So that let me to think... Is it a thread?
    unless is black we would c it, and I don't think he would risk it. So I don't think is so.
    I looked at the picture and started to look at the shadows to the left, and I think I solved the mystery. There must be a stick holding the umbrella in place from behind, the angle of the camera doesn't let us see it but the shadow does. You can see it coming from behind the shadow of the umbrella.
    You guys think I got it right?
