Wow, great shot! I really like the dof, how the hair on the back becomes blurry.

Thank you. This is at F/20 I believe.

This shot was one of my most difficult, because I couldn't for the life of me light up the inside of the flower pedals (he was tucked in at the very back) with my flash. The working distance was to short :ugh:

Still came out cool though IMO

Great shot yeatzee. Detail is fabulous.

I used to see these spiders when I lived in TX now I'm in FL I never see any. All we have here are big ugly spiders I don't care to mess with.

Wow, what an amazing shot!

But I think it is too tightly cropped on the right hand side, and the aspect ratio is uncomfortable. Maybe make it square?

Simply an amazing shot. Wow.

So this was with a 1:1 macro and a reversed lens?

Thanks. It is not cropped on the right.... the wind was blowing quite alot, so the flower was violently swaying. Composing the shots was not possible :ugh:
I will try a square crop
