Default Macro Critters in the Back Yard

. . . From Outer Space!

Got a set of Meike extension tubes for micro 4/3 last Friday based on recommendations I saw on these forums, and I've been fooling around with them. I like the close up results I get with them versus without. Unfortunately, it probably means I'll start lusting after the 60mm macro lens

Ha! The tubes are fine, it's the EP5 that's blown my toy budget for the year (and next) (can't wait to try them when it gets here)

Another one. Had to chase him around the branch. He kept moving around to the opposite side of where I was. Finally, I shooed him with my hand toward where I was waiting with the camera. No idea what it is, but it's kind of cool looking.

Thanks James!

Greg - I think you may be on to something. I'm not much of a bug guy though. Still it's interesting what you can find in your own back yard if you just look

.......I've been looking to find a cicada image that looks like it and have found several that are similar so I vote that it is a cicada though from that angle it does not look familiar.

It is fun to look for the things we normally walk by without noticing......
