    I'm new to macro work, started over the summer and have developed a real passion for it :heart: ...and I might as well confess right up front - I'm a girl - and I love bugs!! :lol:

    Here's a few of my favorite shots... I would like to improve and would really appreciate any feedback, tips, comments, etc... thanks!!

    These shots were all taken without a macro lens - I was using a 50mm 1.8 lens, and extension tubes - usually the 20mm...

    welcome to the forum. I know nothing about shooting macro, so I can't offer up any tips.... however, I think that you did a great job here. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the comments everyone :hug::

    I have developed such a passion for shooting macro, especially bugs, that I'm finding myself very depressed lately as all my subjects are dying off with the cold weather =( LOL

    My favorite subjects have been bumblebees - they are awesome macro subjects (fuzzy cool detal that photographs well) and grasshoppers - they have such funny faces :D

    I like 4, 6, 7. The subjects in these 3 pics stand out against the background more. great series.

    Very fine Irishpub.
    The #1 is my favourite. And hope that's your favourite too. You just got all the details. Eye colour, body gold, the bristles and the green leaves. You focus is very apt.
    #3 is just awesome. Got everything right. Except that I would have prefered the right bottom(brown leaves) to out of focus, just to empasize the butterfly and the green leaves.
    Ofcourse some parts of the flies in #2 and #6 are out of focus, which would have been much better if you had got them right.
    Anyway, I love all of them (especially, because not great optics are behind the work, just and 50mm f/1.8). That's the beauty of it.
    Looking forward for more of them.
