    That last one is the coolest moth I have ever seen.
    Elephant moth or so? (Just inventing a name here because of its trunklike "nose").
    Do I have to say any more about how much I admire you for your macro photography and the clarity and crispness in your very close close-ups here? I have tried to achieve the same yesterday, but with much less success, I'm afraid.

    That sweet and encouraging of you to say LaFoto :) I wish I had a real macro lens to work with but I have to settle for the extension tubes for now. Just out of curiosity what kind of camera do you have? Macro takes some patience and getting used to, many times I have a hard time getting one good shot because insects tend to be skittish. I'm far from being a master at it but I hope to improve on it for sure.

    THat's what got me into macro actually...when I first got my XT I used the Kit lens to take a photo of a bee and it turned out pretty good. I looked into some extension tubes that would work with my 70-200mm f4 (which I don't have any more :( ) which was a cheap solution to get macro shots, and I was amazed what I saw...it's very addicting!


    Thanx for the positive feedback!
