    Here's the result of my first attempt at macro... I recieved my lens converter ring today, so I can finally use my old Vivitar 100mm MACRO lens on my 400D...
    Monopod, 1/250th, 100mm, Manual Focus, Nikon Speedlight SB-24 on camera at full strength.

    and a 100% crop:

    Did a little bit of sharpening on both images after the resizing. Also cropped of a bit on the first photo.

    PS: The bee was dead, picked it out of my pool :)

    Critiques are very welcome, since I am very new to macro photography, and I'd like to experiment a bit more with it :)

    Nice shot. Now try it with a live bee. I'd recommend a bumblebee as they are docile and really don't mind being photographed. :)
