these little "buggers" (lol) are so quick....these were taken in about 1:00-1:30 or so....and i might go back out....it was tough exposing these because the sun was in and out of the clouds....after some serious frustration i managed to get a couple.....here are two of them...

enjoy :)

i am quite pleased with these...exept for the little leaf that is out of focus and kinda blocking the ant....the focus in that picture is on the end of the antenna

Great photos!I like morethe last one! Unfortunately that little leaf is blocking that little "bugger" :?without it would be superb!

thanks! i'm glad you like them!

that was one of the main challenges of shooting these tiny creatures...first i had to be at the right distance for it too focus right....which after the first hour i got pretty used to it.....then there is the challenge of them running around all over the place lol...and then last but not least....the challenge of trying to get no other leaves in the shot....(unlike the second shot lol)

Heh! Great pictures! So, I wonder how many more of us on this forum are trying Zuhdo's lens trick now? :-)

I followed from your link in the challenge forum.

These are great and as you practice they can only get better. Keep us updated with your progress.
