... we have some sun. So, I took my macro lenses from their deep hibernation, and had a walk in the garden to make some macros. The first and last time this year?

As usual, exposure and IQ are spot-on. I would crop a bit more from the right side of the first and third image. It appears you've maintained the same aspect ratio for all three pictures, at the expense of retaining some unnecessary and somewhat distracting material in those two images.

Rense, I really like the softness of these macro shots and the color in #2 is terrific. When I say softness, I sometimes get a little tired of seeing every hair on a bugs leg, these photos are a joy to view. Bob
