I got this little lens for various purposes, macro is one. It's fun! Here's two I capture in our yard. I took plenty more, but I thought they were a bit boring.

I like both the captures! I'm getting into marco photography as well, it's been fun so far, a whole different beast when it comes to capturing an image.

Nice images Linda, you certainly have some scary looking insects in your part of the world. I prefer the first image because of the interesting composistion, however (to me at least) it does seem as if the insect has a fishing rod coming out of his/her head!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys

- yeah Rob, tell me about it. I'm from Sweden, where everything is about as dangerous and scary looking as a strawberry, so I'm still very wary about the bugs around here. Way too many of them too. But, my curiosity takes over and I want to take a closer looks. It's probably more interesting for me since I didn't grew up with them around.

You've done VERY well Miss Linda! :smile: And yes, that is a very fun little lens, it's always right near my camera and used quite frequently. :biggrin:

Nice shots. The last one look like one from outer space.
I do believe bugs are from outer space. :biggrin: Thanks.

:redface: You're too nice, thanks Gret. It's hard to take the Beast off though, but this one will be handy for some macros and what nots. But I noticed it has sever issues with purple fringing.

Very nice shots.
Thank you for the encouragment. :smile:

The good ole 28-105, my first Nikon lens. Nice pics Linda, very sharp.
Was it really? It's a kit lens I believe, I got it second hand from the sell forum here. It's sharper than I expected.

wonderful shots
i like #2 better

that 28-105 is a true gem of a lens
Thanks so much Greg :smile:

And in heavy armor too.

Great captures and I agree on the lens. I had a 105 VR macro and sold it after getting my copy of the 28-105.
Did you really? Wow, well lets not tell them that in the Lens lust forum. lol
Thanks for looking and leaving comments!

Yes really. I don't do a lot of macro stuff mainly around wedding details.

Linda,

Those are well done. That second bug is a type of Assassin bug known as a wheel bug. Beware, they are supposed to have a VERY nasty bite, apparently MUCH worse than a bee-sting, that can take months to heal. They're timid, but if you corner them, watch out.

I gather you are no longer in Sweden?

Wah! See Nick, my fear does come from common sense. Although, I got a bit lax around the assassin bugs and kind of sat with them by our table outside.
Thanks, good to know!

Nope, I left Ol' Europe 8 years ago.
