I don't shoot many close ups, so go easy on me guys...



Chain link fence barb.Shot with Canon A560.



Praying Mantis.Shot with Nikon 18-55mm kit lens with magnifying "filter".



Gecko on the ceiling, shot with a Tamron 70-300 macro (1:2) zoom. Geckos are like the ghosts of the lizard world. They only come out at night and disappear quickly. This was shot in almost total darkness, otherwise he would have been gone.

Thanks for looking, Robert

Thanks, Penolta, for your encouraging words. I will take more and try to improve until I can afford a "real" macro lens.. Robert
