  2. Martin,

    These are awesome shots. Which lens did you use?
     
  3. Hi Crystall, thanks for the comment, I used the 200 f4 micro and for the Sweat Bee I added the Nikon 6T for 2:1 since it was so small.

    Martin, these are great....Definitely more fun than the yard work I did yesterday...I pulled weeds in my vegetable garden...I saw lots of little critters you'd love to photograph as well! Your shots are well done as usual. I just love the sweat bee.
     
  6. Thanks Mike, I eventually got around to running the weedeater.

    I made my self a new flash bracket that works with my dovetail plates since they have mounting holes for flash brackets, works good, a bit on the heavy side with the 200 micro and a couple of flashes though.

  7. Thanks Leigh, the critters can be distracting when your trying to get something done. :)

  9. Martin, I like your idea of "yard work" much better than the usual lawnmowing and weeding! :) :)

    Great macro shots! Thanks for sharing. :)
     
  10. Thanks Jerry, the 200 micro is a lot of lens, I hope I can keep up to its reputation..
