Several of these have been posted before, but it occured to me that there is now quite a collection, so hope you enjoy them.

all shot with a 105 sigma EX except for the last one shot from a stack through a 5x Leitz microscope lens on m42 bellows. I am sorry if any of the pics dont show up, my host has been having some problems with specific IPs, but hitting F5 should cure it.

cool pics, so many different ladybugs eh :)
I just got the same lens 2 weeks ago. Cant wait for spring and all its bugs.

doenoe personally I think that is the best choice for 1:1 macro. If you are inerested you can have a look here, there are a bunch of full size pictures from a minolta 100mm macro, supposedly one of the best ever macros compared to the same shots from the sigma, admitedly the minolta has a longer minimum focusing distance that is really helpfull for live subjects and lighting etc but otherwise i think that the sigma gives a nicer picture.

be warned they are very test like test pics and not interesting in any other way :).

Very nice! I like # 3 the best, but not because of what the bugs are up to LOL. Just because the colors in that one really pop and its so sharp. I also like #9; I'm assuming what the lady bug is eating are aphids? Considering what they look like to the naked eye -> wow!

I like #3 the best because I have a dirty mind.

#9 reminds me that I have to do something about my plants out front this year.

And they're just all great anyhow! Always enjoy seeing your shots.
