Oh yes. Flower macros :D

Dandelion taken with the regular macro - i.e. my Sigma 70-300mm lens, pulled to between 200 and 300mm, then switched to macro

Dandelion seeds on grass blade - taken with the reversed kit lens to my camera, the Canon EFS 18-55mm 1:3.5/5.6, at about 24mm.

Not too sure if these belong here or in the "Creepy Crawlies" theme thread... Since about the only pics I do are macro bug shots I'll try them here, I guess.

Might have to try some flowers this weekend.

@LaFoto: I'm not sure why but the cat nose makes me smile. Great shot! :)

Cheers,
David

This photo feels a bit cliched to me but I was experimenting with an old SLR i found in a cupboard and took this. I think I should have bought the focus in a little bit. Not actually a macro lens though.

Ok so I am kind of new to this whole macro thing, but have figured out how to make my nifty little super zoom DCam do a decent macro. Here is an experimental one:

I posted this before elsewhere, but it's about the only macro I have at this time.

I don't really realize what's that. and I find the noise a bit anoying.


Now about the whole theme:

Many of those pics aren't macros. To make this clear this is the macro definition

The classical definition is photography in which the image on film or electronic sensor is as large or larger than the subject.

and many of them have real problems with the focus and the DOF.

I dont think the majority of pictures here aren't true macro...... just a few.... and maybe some have focus issues....... but the themes threads are not for critiques....... i refer you to the welcome thread at the top of the Themes section Here.
These threads are just for people to join in with there pics whether artistic or snapshot....... critiques are kept to just the main photo galleries and the critique gallery. ;)
