Wow, very cool. I like the second one because you can see the detail in the wing so well. What kind of plant is the buggie-fellow perching on?

Thanks you guys. This is at the Marin Art and Garden Center and all the plants were marked... but I forget what that one was. I'll look when I go back.

~Then for macros I taped an inverted 50mm on the Canon's 50mm.~
The front of the lens is only about 3 inched from his nose.
I was holding the blade still with my other hand. These are uncropped.
Next time I'll stop down further for some more DOF. 1/125 @ f 5.6 ISO 400.

He's on fire or he drank too much red cool aide. That last one does it for me . Looks like you are having fun with the new toy.

OMG-mouth hanging open! I love them all but #4 is superb! I love the wings in that one! The last one is like some kind of alien!:D :clap: :clap:

My favorite is #5 :D
I like it because it's beautifully composed (as if you could *actually* compose a photo of a dragonfly! ;) ) and because it's SO different from our usual macro/close-ups. But #8 HAS to go into the "most extreme" macro category! NEVER got THIS close to any of mine. :D

As for the rest? YIPEEEE!!! WAY TO GO!!

Well, you know me and bugs, (give me a trusty libard any day of the week) but I will say that this red guy is moderately attractive:D Like especially shots 4 and 6, the last one is incredible but I'm afraid I'm gonna see him to night in my dreams:eek:

You was just teasing us with the first posting eh????? Reeling us in..........

My goodness Anne these really are something to behold. The detail is fantastic, and the subject matter so neat.

WOW.
