Hee yeah lor, cos I go too near, sacrifice a bit of the clarity :( Am already using a tripod.

Yeah u're right megaweb, I really need a closeup filter. Will it help a lot? I really like taking macros hee

The first 2 pics I've used one of the "Sunny" Whitebalance. For the last 3, I've use a white paper to set as reference just for experimentation :D

As for the topic, if u've seen the "Silence Of the Lamp" movie poster b4, there was a lady with the mouth cover by a butterfly :D

I see, thanks. So +4 means roughly to how many CM nearer? Or do they mean magnify 4x bigger?

Sure :) I wanna take more nature macros other than my same old boring batteries and handphones haha :D

BTW are u going for tomorrow's SEED too?

Butterfly shots are best taken at the Butterfly park at Sentosa. They have huge trained butterflies that are will stay for you to take a shot. :p

Sure, but might need some time because I don't have a webpage at the moment and the forum does not support uploading of images.

Hee no prob cheewee, I'm new at this too :) I could really need more comments :)

For the "closeness", I will try to solve it hee

As for the colour, do u have any suggestion on how to improve it?
