Really great pics. Love the colors, and very sharp details.

My biggest problem with jumper macros is the ones I find around here are all extremely small and I can only find them in my citrus trees. The slightest wind will completely ruin any chance of getting a macro shot of them.

I did find a larger one on the wall of my house last summer and got some really good shots. These tiny ones are an exercise in frustration!

All very nice. I can never get good lighting for this type of macros.

Very nice focus fade out on the zebras. Tell the garden spiders to turn around and give you some top views if they wouldn't mind. One of these days the new snow will go away and I will have to try a spider shot.

Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated.

Redstickman, I had that same problem yesterday photographing the last 2 pics....even the tiniest breeze was a nightmare, I must have taken around 100 shots to get those 2, so i can understand your frustrations

Bayourebel, for most of my shots I use the onboard flash covered with a home made difuser.The lens I use (raynox dcr150) focusses about 8 inches from the subject which is sufficient to avoid shadows caused by the lens etc. I usually aim for the flash not to be very obvious in my shots, as I want them as natural looking as possible....the flash merely helps freeze the subject at such high magnifications.

Very nice macros, I like them all but my favorite by far is the third one! The composition, sharpness and colour is excellent.
