Just a couple of caterpillars. My 5 years old Vaio laptop conked and had to be sent in for repair. Not sure if I can get all the data/images back though. On a brighter note, there was still a one month warranty left.

Thanks kyrontf. I have most of the raw images in my four CF cards still. Just need time to rePP the images.

The last one looks so alien

Thanks for the comment.

Again...GREAT work! I am fixing to get started in some macro work and would love to know a simple, beginner set up for still and in-animate objects. What would be a good start such as flash, a tripod, etc. Budget around $300...if that't even possible.

Thanks Carol. Don't think you can get any macro lens for US$300. You should be able to use the 70-200 to photography bigger objects/subjects such as dragonflies, butterflies, caterpillars, flowers etc. Just start using natural light. You might need a set of extension tubes so you can get even closer i.e. achieve higher magnification.

These are both so great! That second one kind of weirds me out a little, but in a good way ;) I read the post too quickly at first and I thought you meant that you have a 5 yr old and their laptop broke lol.

I should have been more clear...I have a macro lens on the way. The budget of $300 would be for tripod, flash, etc.
