Got myself a Sigma 105EX macro lens off ebay and went to botanicla gardens in Buffalo NY. Used my Canon 1DMK2 and tried to get somthing realy close. So these ants on this flower and gave it a try. Used an off camera flash that i held with one hand.

hey!

looks VERY good for a first try!

the picture is a bit big for the web though...i normally resize to 600 pixels as the longest side...but up to 800x600 is alright

nice shot great yellow color!
