    Just a beginner... but always practicing... I kinda like these 2 shots as I think they are some of my best so far. C&C always welcome :)

    These were both just taken in my backyard a few minutes ago


    First is a spider that is eating his bee

    Second is a nice butterfly I took in my butterfly garden

    Not sure whats wrong with them... but I am sure somebody can tell me.... hopefully there is something good about them as well :)

    The subject in #1 is a bit difficult to wrap my head around, I can't really tell what's what, but it's pretty sharp.

    #2 has good focus all over, but could use a little more saturation.

    Thank you :)

    Yes in #1 the spiders face (?) is stuck in the bees belly. It was the best angle I could get. These bugs were very small. I was using a macro extension tube on my lens (28-75 mm tamron)

    #2 ... Thanks I will try more saturation and see what I get.

    I like the first!
    Colour of plant and colour of spider both look pretty (easily!) convincing to me. They're both green, after all! :biggrin:

    Funny thing is that shortly before I first saw this thread (yesterday, without speaking, I wasn't in speaking mode yesterday, sorry), I had meant to post a photo of a spider feeding on a wasp (which would be similar to this one feeding on a bee). But I couldn't make up my mind to really post my pic...
