Took this today using my new Canon S2. Using the 0cm macro mode on a tripod. Was a killer cause wind was blowing the grass all around.
Would like some tips on composition as well as any other comments. Thanks.

bugger a little blur too centralised and the white thingy in background bugging me. tighter crop + little sharpening, tweaking would be nicer.

i got 2 hoya +4's which I tried to use but using telezoom + macro lens + tripod, it's still near impossible to take a clear sharp shot. Any tips??

Hi sci, just wondering, wouldn't a bigger F stop cause the background to be clearer? Wanted the background to blur out.
I'm not so keen on the S2 Super Macro mode either, but I haven't really found a good set up with the S2 that takes good Macro pictures. Tried using 2 x Hoya +4's but super duper shaky. Focusing distance with the Normal Macro mode + the +4's is around 20-25 cm.. and margin for error is like around 1cm so I'm wondering whether anyone else has a better idea cause I'm a bit lost. =(
Thanks, will try out the larger F stop + faster shutter next macro shoot.

Thanks ccube. Still relatively newbie so would love to learn from the pros here.
1 question about taking it from the back with the sky as the background, how do you take such a shot without the object turning out all dark? I tried to get a back shot but all I got was a dark outline. Same goes for similar angles I tried out. Any tips?

some fill flash will bring out more details and colour from the image.
