Your favorite macro of bugs, insects, butterflies, unusual one please!

posted May 27th, 2012
Today I was walking trough my garden when I saw them....get a room please!
They were so cute and I manage to catch them with my camera....




Last week also I saw this ugly guy, but I don't know his name...don't be afraid, but he is really ugly....

I think this is my fav as I had just received my new 100mm macro at work on this date, and found this little guy on my rose bush in my driveway, when I got home. Of course I whipped out the new lens and captured him. This shot launched my passion for macro photography...

Anyone? Show me your bugs!

@Patty It is so nice, I like the color, the bug, so unusual and fragile one! I am saving for my first macro, I want Tamron 90 mm 2.8, hope to buy him soon because the bug season is just started!

Saw this monster chewing down his lunch yesterday. Very bold dragonfly!



Loved this gentle moth hanging on the path along my daily walk!

Here are a couple of mine.

Ooh, I love taking macro shots! This is a weaver ant. I think he's very photogenic.



And a tiny jumping spider. He is barely 1cm (0.3in)!

This is the only one I got mostly by accident lol...

Don't have a macro lens, this is what I captured with my big lens because I didn't want to get any closer!

A really unusuak fly...

I love this cute little guy :)

I took this last year and my favorite macro so far. My first time to see a fly (the size of a grain of rice) drinking raindrops. I'm going to hunt for this fascinating scene come summer. I hope I will be able to find one.



And I like this one too...

A wasp that hung around for days. I don't think he felt well.

i was taking a macro of a flower when a teeny, tiny bug appeared.
This is my most recent. I was pleased with the clarity.

another "Get a room" shot. I did not know this was two flies mating when I starting snapping pics...I did this with my zoom lens..need a macro! Anyway, I thought it was one little fly on the wooden edge of a planter box in our outdoor classroom at school..turns out, it was this!

I don't know if this counts, technically it's not a macro shot as I took it with my tele lens from a distance of 1,5 meters:



But these are "real" macros:

I hadn't seen one like this before in the area, usually it's little turquoise ones we get.
