The first signs of spring have started to show here in Northern Colorado, well, besides the warm weather that is

So, that means the start of Macro season for me. Time to dust off the extension tubes and close up lenses

Shot with my Takumar 200mm F3.5 Preset with Raynox 250 closeup lens attached and the K20D

You achieved a beautiful result with that Raynox. Was this a handheld shot? Well done.

Thanks Tamia. Yeah, a handheld shot. I don't have a decent tripod, so most all my macro work is handheld. I sometimes use my monopod when I want to get REAL close.
