I love all your up close shots you post, I keep trying but something always goes a miss. Is that a Horsefly on #4? I was a baker back in the day so I have been stung by quite a few wasps, they love there sugar.
#2 is a definate winner
agreed, the contrast difference in the bright yellow and grayish/blue grape color is awesome on #2
Sucks his lil head couldn't stay still for the shot haha
Not a horsefly, don't know what though.
Very cool, digging #3 myself:thumbup:
Great close up shots!!
Thanks guys, glad you liked them. They are all hand held & shot with a Helios 58/2 on a 20mm extension tube. The light was low & I did not want to exceed ISO400 so my shutter speeds were slow & I got quite a few blurry pics.
Wow. I really like #3. Well done!
#2 is amazing IMO. I think #1 could use a closer crop, because all I can focus on is the bright area to the top left/
#4 is a Cicada... they're all over the place here
very nice close up very crisp and colors are amazing good job
