I am really enjoying my macro efforts and am quite pleased witrh them. However on Saturday we did a photo class in the Botanic Gardens and came across an elderly man on his hands and knees with his camera stuck in a ground cover plant. He looked like an elderly hippie or a retired academic with beard and long straggly hair. His camera was impressive with its long lenses and extensions and a home made diffuser on the end.
After watching for a while I plucked up the courage to ask him if I could see his shots. He happily showed me this amazing shot of an insect's eye. He showed me the bug he had been shooting - about 1 cm long in total! Now that is really macro!!
SO my humble efforts below.
Hydrangea - well past its prime.
Marigold - love this bold colour.
