    Talking Underneath the leaves

    I have never received any awards or recognition for my photos, but if I can earned a dollar for every weird stares I get from people at the local park when I do macro photography, that would be awesome enough. LOL

    I doubt this was an ordinary water drop being slimy and bubbly. Besides, it was a really hot afternoon. We were running from one shades to another.

    You can find a lot of interesting stuff if you just stop and look under the leaves.

    Now that's insulting. Even a fly would turn away and show me it's rear-end.

    Awesome macro shots! I can't wait to get a macro lens!!!

    I love it when people walk by my house and I'm out front with my camera sitting on a chair staring into the bushes looking for a frog!! It's even better when they come back around two hours later and I'm still there!! LOL

    Thanks Milind. I used my EF 50mm f/2.5 compact macro. Minimum focusing distance is 23cm.
    Pros:
    - very sharp
    - great bokeh
    - not that expensive
    Cons:
    - maximum magnification is only 1:2 (0.5x); 1:1 with EF Life Size Converter
    - have to get really close to get the max mag.
    - the sound when focusing is a bit loud

    If you have more cash to spend, better get the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro.

    Wonderful macros Sparda!
    I wonder if I could get something similar with my EF 50mm f1.8...
