I know we are not competitive here, but ... (or are we?). How can any of my shots come close to these? How can anybody else's shots come close?

These are just fantastic shots! The little world of small creatures slowly gets revealed, and comes alive. As somebody said in the other thread, "the bar gets higher."

Thank you Dabbler and Mick, really appreciate your comments!

Roger - don't get discouraged! I've seen your shots and they are fantastic. Just keep in mind, for every shot I post, there are about 20 that didn't come out just right! I just keep trying until I get something that is worth posting!

UJEFROCNCOL - I'm stacking two closeup lenses (they screw on like filters), so I don't think it will work on a teleconverter. Sorry...
Hey, we appreciate talent when we see it! I've gotten a whole new perspective on bugs, from seeing the fantastic photos you shoot of them! I now catch myself looking for bugs!
