    Thanks Tim. I find I seem to have to take an awful lot of shots to find any worth working with. I think maybe I'm beating myself up over something that's not so easy to control.

    There's been a slight breeze in my garden the last couple of weekends and, with the depth of field being so small when shooting macros, I have been trying smaller apertures. However, in doing so, the shutter speeds have reduced, making the shots blurred for another reason. That, coupled with a moving subject as a result of the breeze, isn't making things easy...

    :smile:

    welcome to the world of Macro.. i understand about the wind blowing and trying to get the results we are looking for... I find my keeper rate is much lower doing macro then anything else.. also I find the more really nice shots I get the more I think my others are not that good..just keep shooting...

    Been tinkering with the tripod on the camera when shooting macro. It helps!
