Hungry? I wasn't, I am. Shame on you, Rickst.:-)

Beautiful closeups as usual from you.

Beautiful capture.
Question: do you use AF when doing this kind of macro?

Seeing your shots, I reached out on my deck and just took this 1:1 macro with my new old Vivitar Series 1 105mm lens (no PP):

Here is a shot of the "surroundings". Ok, I grow them in a bag.

Gorgeous!! the raspberry!!..So crisp and colourful..I'm going out to check out the garden...:)

I use autofocus when I can but, for shots like the "airy" weeds, autofocus doesn't work so MF is the way to go. I spent this morning (Sunday) shooting some really nice spider webs, and you have to manual focu for them.

Your lady bugs seem to like milkweeds . . . . Send me some! The aphids have my milkweeds all to themselves: :cry:;forum_id=7
