Very nice shots everyone! I spent some time out this weekend and am amazed at how much more I see when I have a camera and especially one with a macro lens. I find my self walking slowly and looking everywhere when I would normally stroll along and pass everything up. The little tree frog shown below is no larger than the tip of my finger. He is so small at first I thought it was a bug of some sort. If I hadn't had the macro setup I'm sure I would have missed him as well as the shield bugs. All shot with Sigma 180mm 3.5 macro, natural light and a monopod. Most are with the 5D but a few from yesterday with the A100.

I hope you won't mind my intrusion. I shoot with a 5D and beercan coupled with Raynox 250/150 diopter converters. These are from today:

How did you managed to convince the mosquito to stay put? :-)

Looks like silly question but I see a lot of macro shots with different kind of insects. I tried some, but they always flay away from me.
