    #1 Well, you crawl out of a yellow egg (of which i dont have a pic) looking a bit like this:

    #2 Then you feel like making a blob of yourself and then look like this:
    [​IMG]

    #3 And finally you crawl out of the blob and you'll be a beautifull ladybug:

    Me too! Pretty interesting stuff! Doenoe, do you ever post a pic that doesn't rock? I swear! :D All fantastic shots!

    I started off with #1 saying ooo that rocks, Then looked at #2 and went Ooo, even better! then #3 and said to myself dang, better still! Then I saw #4 and my socks melted.

    Awesome images as usual (!!!) but I feel you should reimburse me for the socks! :D

    wow, one of those was crawling around my office the past few days and we all marveled at it and and had no idea what it was. apparently it was a ladybug that had just crawled out of its yellow shell.

    thanks for this thread, daan. :D

    Just curious but what kind of Macro set up do you have? You are at a lot greater than 1:1 magnification in all those shots, so you've got to be doing more than using a macro lens. :)

    I asked him the same thing. It seems he gets asked in just about every thread. So far I think his best answer is in this message about half way down: http://thephotoforum.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1271407&postcount=9 I'm betting he has a Nikon and is using it occasionally at F32. It almost looks like those stacked images I saw in another thread here.

    I just don't see how's it possible.. I have the Canon 100mm Macro and I've taken lady bug pictures before and you can get nowhere near that close.. Regardless of aperture, something else has to be in the equation unless he's making some ungodly large crops, in which sharpness would suffer.. So I'm just not sure.
