More Macro mini beasts.

Still playing with my new 35mm, love it.

Just need to work on my technique a little now.

I can not believe just how close you can get to flies! They are literally inside the lens!

Hey Tim

It does look as though you are getting to grips with the lens. However, can I make a suggestion... a simple one too... perhaps try using a flash! You'll get a lot more detail.

Re: More Macro mini beasts.

Those are quite lovely, great set! A little fill-in flash will go a long way on any macro stuff
