Reflecting Beetles

Beetles from all over the world regard themselves in the mirror, and find that they are all left-handed circularly polarized. Shot with a Canon EOS 450D through a circular polarizer for photography oriented the wrong way around. [Honorable mention, 2017 After Image photo contest.]
