Default Some macro stuff.

Didn't do that much macro stuff last days but these I would like to share.

Starting with a grashopper, around 1:1 macro.


or a bit closer cropped.


another was sitting watching what was happening, rather liked the pose.



and then some 2mm and smaller stuff.

This was the smaller stuff, a nymph of a treehopper. Don't really know how big but it was 1:1 + raynox250dcr and raynox150dcr = 3.2:1 (last time I meassured)



and the larger ones (also 3.2:1) these I almost could see



(focus stack - 2 handheld images - guess I'll have to redo the stack because the tail isn't correct - just noticed after uploading)

those 3 at 3000px/2000px are here http://rhermans.smugmug.com/keyword/treeleaf%20hopper

Cheers

Ronny

Good job all around, Ronny!
Its real hard to get a good focus when you can't see what you're focusing on.

As soon as you are focussing on them you're looking thru the lens and then there is no problem, but finding them, knowing that that spot that moves is an insect that's the hard part.

Although not so really hard. Take your camera put on some raynox stuff, and lie down next to a wooden pole, and wait you won't believe how many spots are moving. (and I wasn't drinking)

Thanks GW

I'm in the group that can't believe how you can photograph anything that small! Amazing.
