Neat shots - I'm not sure what that bug is. I suck at these games.

That eye is amazing. You can see what she sees, reflected in it.

Courtney said...

Macro is fun, isn't it? Great shots! Is it a fly of some sort? Horsefly?

Great shots. It's amazing you could get so close to the bug.

WoW! I never had this kind of fun with macro mode. Do you use a tripod or are you able to hold that camera steady? Goodness - in either case - these are wonderful.

I really love the matchbox car! I have memories that are conjured up with that one. Great memories. Little brothers are the best - except when they pull the eyes off of 7 years locusts. So I know - that bug is not a locust. I'm guessing it's a fly.

Thanks for sharing them!

Wow, that flower is gorgeous! I love the bokeh and the colors. The flower looks so delicate.

I like the other macro shots as well! That eye one is great... perfect clarity and focus!
