    1 is beautiful! The detail you were able to get in both the dark leaf and the white eggs is stunning!

    Wonderful series - all are so nice and crisp.

    Great shots. I like seeing the stages of change in the first three.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone :D
    TCImages - yeah, im getting there. Think it was a good plan to practice before the wild bugs come to life. Thanks for all the tips you gave, they really helped alot :)
    Harmony - yeah, i took several shots of the eggs before i found the right exposure. Im pretty happy with this shot, only the top egg looks weird. So ill be going back again and try to find a nice batch of eggs and try to get them all in focus.
    Anty - ill be looking for the thread, thanks for the heads-up

    Great set of pics. Can't say I've ever seen the eggs so closeup.

    thanks :)
    Those eggs were tiny. When i saw them, i thought they would be round. Never thought there would be a patern there. Was a nice surprise :)
