Went into my garden when there was a spell of sunshine and warmth, and returned with 'Lieder ohne Worte' ('Songs without Words'). All 7D, Sony twin flash. #2 Minolta 50mm macro, the others Minolta 100mm macro.

Since this thread has "semi macro's" in the title I think a 1:4 shot with the big beercan should qualify.
Taken from a tripod at 1/40th

Some recent flower details with the Tam90. Couldn't resist when I saw the backlighting in the first two.

#2


Pleased with how the 7D handled the reds here. The jpeg looked like caca. Only pp'ing with the MRW was to Clarify and then USM after a slight crop out of the right frame

Since this thread is dedicated to the joy of Macro-photography hereby some thoughts about flowers:

First they bloom in magical colors, a good reason to make a picture
Then they have seeds in rich browns or reds, also a good reason to make a picture
Even the fruits or seeds get dropped or eaten there's still beauty left that's worthy of our efforts to capture the magical shapes:

That first shot is the definition of macro. Sweet!
Planned or coinkydink?
EDIT: nevermind, closer look at the second pic reveals all. Well done!

A few from the summer with my A100. All shot with a Minolta 75-300 'D' (the cheap one!). I used a Canon 500D close up filter for the butterfly shots.
