Another photo experiment

This morning I tried a little bit different setup with the butterflies instead of my camera and it turned out quite nice, I think I'm getting closer to the effect I wanted (limited to no shadow, plus a fuzzy background).  A few years ago I read something about using a pane of glass a few inches above a sheet of paper to obtain the neutral background and to allow more room for the shadows to disappear, and to use a bit of clay to stick the pin into on the glass.  I used white paper but you can see it turned out a very nice soft gray which is perfect.  Here is the result, using the same camera and flash settings as last night:
