Blue Ringtail, Austrolestes annulosus

This thing was tiny, only about 2 inches long, which is why it's not very sharp.

Thanks!

Day four:

Think I have got it, or at least as close to "it" as I can get with the kit lens.

Nowhere near as good as kaska's but I am happy with that. Nearly fell into a lake taking it! :lol:

Really liking that last one - the spidersilk to the left gives the game away though; you had the poor thing tethered while you were shooting.



LOL:blah:

what lens are you using??
you're also finding out that shooting these is not a walk in the park.

All these dragons are beautiful but this one is amazing.

It is solid gold sitting on the end of a ordinary sewing needle.

Wow that sculpture is amazing!

Thanks all, really happy with that last photo. I was using the kit 18-55 lens, it's actually pretty good for macro's, but it's not really sharp that close, but I have the Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro lens coming next week which will make things easier (I hope)


Not going to stop now though, will be back at it Monday lunchtime!
