Well, Narmer, the DOF is really shallow!

Of the lot, I think my Fav is the 8th one counting from the top L to right.

Thanks Hiroshi and Bootneck2.

Sven maybe it's still cold there in Germany for JS?

Tchuanye: you are right, and shallow DOF is certainly the reason why you use rev. lens on a 4xZoomCanon A610.
Without the possibility to have all the eyes in focus on a few mm small creature, the creativity/composition factor disappears, and all turns to be a hunt for a picture with a very small (hopefully important) part in focus... the "WOW" factor only resides in the great magnification, but this tends to lean more on a microscopic work than composition and photography.

The following one is another rev. macro (only 50mm rev. without the two Nikons).
The guy is about 1,5mm long.

thanks

I still need practice, even with Nikons...

My trouble is that I should need more practice, but have not much time: when I am on trekkingit's hard to stop even for 10 minutes... then having to reach the group...

The ideal would be to be alone, but then it'd be less funny as far as general discovering-experience. Also I am not only focussed on macros... also like "bothering" landscapes
