    Found this little guy DOA outside my front door so I posed him on some plants and took some postmortem pics...

    Good shots. I like #2 the best, #4 it looks like a dead bug.

    Please number your shots for easy reference.

    It would be weird if the eyes grabbed me, but I agree with vtf.

    These pics make me wonder how many bug pics I've seen where the bugs were dead!! And is that a tomato plant?

    Cool shots.

    I just ordered a Canon 60mm macro and ringlight, and am looking forward to getting into it myself.

    It seems that DOF is very narrow at these close focus distances?

    What apeture setting did you use?

    Yes it is a tomatoplant, and yes, I am sure many macro bug pucs are of dead bugs. People just don't want to admit it!!!!
