Mini beasts

This little greenfly was taken with my E420 and 35mm.

For the size of the greenly I am extremely pleased with the detail that has been captured. I never realised that they were so intricate.

Re: Mini beasts

Nice photos Tim, you certainly have your technique perfected. Great macro shots, I like the moth.

It's been hard graft Tom, 2 years ago I was getting very frustrated because I couldn't do Macro to the standard I wanted.

I had a great deal of help off people on this forum which had me looking at settings, techniques and my positions etc.

I am pretty pleased with the results I get now. There used to be a guy on the forum called Danny, his Macro work was stunning and inspiring.

Just found the old thread; http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=14645
