  2. Woooow....nice, Jonathan really like #1 :smile:
     
  3. Hi Jonathan --
    You didn't post the one of the ant walking around the hebe flower !!
    That one was my favorite because it looks as though the ant is walking
    around a focused "slice" of the flower.
    Great macros !!

    Beautiful, the bokeh and the constrast of the backgroung color are great
     
  5. Thanks Andrea, or is it Anne... :)

    The ant one is actually posted in the Nikon Cafe Challenge #15. The presence of the ant puts the flower into perspective as to the size of the cluster.

    Regards,
    Jonathan

  6. Thanks Ben. One of the many reasons the 105mm micro is my favourite lens by far.

  8. Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your persistent effort :smile:. I checked the log, it is hotlinking prevention that is failing your request. I think you must have an internet security or privacy protection software that is blocking the REFERER in the http request header.

    Sorry about the inconvenence... ;-)

    Regards,
    Jonathan

  10. Wow, the first one is so beautiful. I really like it.
     
  11. Jonathan, you know I'm a fan and these are lovely shots! I'm rather partial to shot #2. Would like to see it with a little darker background on the bottom portion out of curiosity. The brightness of the yellow overpowers it a bit, but it's still my favorite of the 2!!
