What can one say but that your photos continue to amaze... It has to be the photographer; no, make that the artist...:-)

Great as all your posts.
Why didn't you apply NR to the backgrounds ?

Stunning what you can do with your camera. Never landed macros quite that sharp. What is the Sigma CU? An additional macro lens on top of the 6T?

Narmer, good eye for spotting that. I did apply neat image to all of them, but the noise was still there as really, the lighting was very bad, and the shots were quite underexposed even with the low shutter speed. Hence, when I up the levels, the noise was much worst than what you see here.

Sigma Close up lens is a double element close up lens that I stack on the 6T. This CU lens is a +1.6 and I think is quite similar to the Nikon 5T (+1.5). Heard its no more in production. I got it long time ago during my flim SLR days.

Love the 3rd shot "hanging on" which is picture perfect and No.5 "Bee". All more than pretty good considering lighting conditions.

amazing shots, as usual, CY! i especially like #3... the fly looks almost metallic, and the iridescence of the eye is really something. wonderful photos!
