    well i am very new to photography, i have just purchased my first DSLR camera from WOLF's camera. It is the Nikon D80 kit with the 18-55mm lens and i also purchased the sb800, and a nikor 60mm macro lens. just a quick tid bit about why i purchased the camera is i have a great passion for field herping (finding reptiles & amphibians in the wild) its great fun and half of it to me is photographing them and i got tired of my point and shoot so i upgraded i have not had the opertunity to use this camera in the field yet since the weather is not the greatest her in cali for most herps so i took a few pics of what i keep, advise and opinions would be welcome.

    Welcome to the forum. You must be very excited at the amount of detail you can capture with the macro lens as compared to the point-n-shoot you were using up 'til now.Great colours and details on these shots.

    For those spider pics, I'd need that huge Canon 1200 mm or whatever lens so I could shoot from as far away as possible :confused:

    Forum request..... Put "spiders" in your subject if the post contains spider images. I opened this thread at 5 am this morning and am just now waking up from shock and fear to comment :D

    Seriously, great shots. They indeed did make me shiver, hehehe.
