It`s been a very frustrating day today, loads of insects/spiders etc around for macros but the bright sunshine made it a nightmare to view the LCD and focus.Even using the viewfinder was difficult at times, so a lot of todays efforts ended up on the recycle bin.Managed a few ok shots though.....

1# Zebra Spider, first half decent shot of one. The don`t sit still for long :-)

The warm sunshine got the Ladybirds on the move, so they weren`t as easy to shoot as the other day when they were torpid in the cold winds.....

Later on in the day the local Sparrows came in for a feed.....this was at 200iso as it was quite late in the afternoon, and is cropped quite a lot hence being on the small side.Hope you like them all......

Nice shots Mark. That bee looks like it is about to pounce on me.

All nice shots. That bird is cute, and that bee does have a grumbly look to it.

All nice shots. The bee does look rather upset. Amazing the many different colorings of ladybugs.

Super shots there Mark, and the bumble bee does look mad. It's great to see so many people on this forum shooting macros.
