These are taken by my gf using her K100D + Vivitar 105mm (Kiron), I did the PP for her. Looks like the Tamron 90mm Di will be hers since she's constantly complaining how heavy the Vivitar is:bsmilie: It's a wonder how ladies can complain a DSLR is heavy when they can carry a baby almost the whole day:think:

Thanks bro. Somehow I see my own macros whenever I look at the ones she take. The only difference is my gf don't use 1:1 macro, she rather to have more space to crop in PP, whereas I prefer 1:1 or more as far as possible:bsmilie:

If I'm not wrong, that's an Albatross in the last picture. She shot that crazy butterfly with a 105mm macro lens? 0.o

Tell her I kowtow, need tricks on how to sneak up on it. In any case, most of the white butterflies in Singapore are crazily active, can barely get them with the 70-300 lens I bummed from you.. 105mm? No hope! :bsmilie:

Very nice! Like the last 3 in the second post most, probably because I don't like flower shots/spiders more than for any other reason. +)

Thanks bro. We are lucky to find one in the bushes, the time was 5.30-6+pm so they are less active. Here are my shots.;)

:bsmilie: Thanks bro. Here's a butterfly fallen prey to a spider. I was really surprise when I saw the spider. The color is the same as the flower:bigeyes:





Here's the praying mantis head shot. Since K100D can't do wireless mode, it was really underexpose due to the leaves covering it. Also since it's so small, I have to crop away a lot

OMG... Gotta show me how you guys do these macro....
I can't imagine getting that close to the insect....
Something about them having more than 4 legs....
Just too unnatural for me... Brrr.....

I'm willing to give a crash course on my limited macro knowledge. That's if you are willing to come Tao Payoh or SBG;) 12-2.30 pm would be good for weekdays. Weekend can arrange also:D I prefer insects macro because they have more details, if you like plants, we can do that too:)

Probably will want to start with flowers first.... :bsmilie:
BTW, we've got one more converted...
Sold my DL... Had a nice long chat with him too... :D

Tomorrow 12-2.30pm I'll be free, else it'll be after 5pm. Tao Payoh MRT good for you? or do you prefer elsewhere? Better I cater to your venue since you going surgery. But you sure you are suitable to be in outdoor hor?
