    Okay, so these aren't real Macro if you get into the semantics of it. probably better called 'close up' shots or something. but they were fun no less.

    all were taken with my Nikon 18-200mm VR lens, no close up filters or tubes or anything. all were around f5.6-f8.

    C&C welcome.
    1: actual first macro shot ever. not too bad, all due considering

    2: I was focusing on the spider in the center of the leaf, didn't even notice the other one until I was reviewing the photos :meh:

    3: This butterfly just cruized up and landed on a pile of firewood, let me take a bunch of pictures of it, this was the best one of him, though I had to crop a little bit to get most of the lower left shadow out of the pic (I think its my shoulder shadow)

    Thanks Jacki, I was suprized how it turned out. I really didn't expect much, it was kindof just a 'what else can I take a picture of' single shot.
