    Very crisp! You can see every detail of its ... erm ... fur?

    Makes you want to have this one as pet... erm ... not really? ;)

    Honestly now: this is the kind of photo that I am still aspiring to take, so far without success.

    Hi


    The only way that I have found to take shots like these is to take many shotss.. even when you think you have a good one.. I take more... I think that this shot took me maybe 25 goes..... Others are ok.... but as you said.. this was the most crisp one out of the bunch!

    OK SEE YA

    Looking at pictures of close up insects makes me feel kind of weird. Main insects I don't like seeing close up are wasps or hornets. I think its the creepy insect looking eyes :confused:

    Well now Im a proud owner of a 20D... but this picture was taken with a Nikon 8700.....

    I am now after a true macro lense for my 20D.. Any ideas anyone?? I am leaning towards a Sigma 150mm MACRO. Thoughts?

    The lenses was nearly touching the bee to take that photo.... obviously not an angry one!!!

    See ya
