    Most of mine were posted before we got a macro forum, and I've been slow to add new ones.

    Macro is faaaarrr from dying. Sometime this weekend, I'll get some new ones up - just for you, lol! ;)

    Marco dieing????????????
    What rock you living under ;) everyone is getting into macro - there have been loads of people take it up and there are some fantastic people out there shooting shots!

    As for TPF we get a good amount of buggy shots - but not as much commenting sadly - so go on start commenting, its always welcome - and the more coments given the more chance that more macro will appear too :)

    Is this a challenge? I just went out and shot a spider......

    I'm on the phone with Adorama atm, so I'll process when done.

    ...Overkill? Couldn't you just have used your shoe?

    Unless it was a huge, ugly spider with fangs - I would have shot it too.


    :lol:

    You know, I get the same $hit when I tell someone that I'm shooting dogs on Tuesday nights. Some of last nights bounty. (Acutally, I'm a volunteer at my local shelter. Please spay or neuter your pets.)

    Okay, finished the deal. Another refurbed SB-800 and some light modifiers to boot from Adarama. They are hard little buggers to find nowadays.

    Now, the challenge by young Mr. xiangji. I'm probably not up for a good showing, but here's what I caught this evening. The spider that only needs a shoe, not a 12ga.
