This photo is not a true macro shot, it was taken with the A100/18-70mm kit+close up

Well, I think if you can see the bug's eyes it's a true macro. Also true is THAT is a great capture my friend.

Are we bored with dragonflies yet? I liked this one, for the bokeh as much as the subject:



And here's another of the same individual:

@rastapartaman, that is a very weird looking insect - fantastic shot!
@dilettante, I love the bokeh in #1. You sure you didn't clone the dragonfly onto the second shot? ;-) It's amazing how similar the pose is.

I didn't do any cloning on this shot - rhododendron leafhoppers all plugged into the same vein:


And here's an example of how we have to suffer for our art:

Jagged, very well done. What an extraordinary shot, all these leafhoppers nicely lined up.

Wow, the leafhopper train is great. I wonder if there's anything left for the one at the back to suck!

But that mosquito doesn't look very full - you didn't suffer *that* much for your art :-)

Actually the worst bites came from the ones that landed on my legs and other arm while I was busy looking at the one on my hand - I didn't notice them until they'd had a good suck. But yes, you're right, I should have waited for it to fill up a bit more before taking the shot!

I have another shot of lined-up leafhoppers, although I think I prefer the one I posted earlier:

Ooh, I like that one. A pano-style crop might be good
