I spent the weekend in France at my friends families gite. We had a great time and although I took all my gear along I didn;t take too many photos for myself. I mainly took shots of the gite to go on their site to help promote it as a business.

I did however do some macro work as they had a huge garden full of plants and insects. Two of which I thought I'd share.

No idea what they are so feel free to let me know :)

Loved the colours on this one, he was almost metallic looking!

D2x, Sigma 105 Macro, 1/10 second at f11, ISO 400 (left my flash in the UK annoyingly so had to up the ISO)

This second one was collecting pollen which you can just make out on his legs in the low res version. He was climbing from flower to flower so I thought I'd try to capture his surroundings to show this. On some of the others I have of this fella he back looks like a mask when viewed upside down, very amusing!

D2x, Sigma 105 Macro, 1/200 second at f5.6, ISO 200

There were also lizards (or Gekos?) everywhere. I took a fair few pics of them, this is one of the ones I liked the most as he head and front foot are sharp then his body and tail snake out of shot in the oof background. He was actually really small but the 200-400 is almost a macro lens it can focus so close (oh and this is a crop too).
