I used a 150mm Macro in full sunlight at f/4.5 and 1/5000 sec. ISO 400.

This macro of the Bearded Dragon's eye has a pretty narrow DOF.

Very nice. I love how the purple just pops in the first image, a great example of what a shallow DOF does to a subject.



The second image may give me nightmares...LOL

I, too, like the first on the most. The color, DOF, and conposition are beautiful.

The second shot doesn't give me nightmares but this photo is as close as I care to get!

Great work.

Terrific shots. The color in the first is striking, and the detail in the second is outstanding.

Both are fantastic. I can blame you for the nightmares I'll have tonight now, though. That's one evil looking eye.

Ooo, Sorry if I gave some of you the willies. I forget that not everyone is a fan of reptiles.
Thank you for the nice compliments though.
I guess you should be glad I didn't post pics of my 8 tarantulas. He he he :G
