I was rumaging around my box of photography equipment when I happened upon my set of macro diopters that I never used. I originally got it for my canon powershot a95. Didn't find it all that impressive, so back into the box in the closet it went. Anyways, after following some of alibunnylady's post, I cleaned up the +4 diopter and put it in place of the UV filter on my 18-55mm. Here are some pics of this green little beetle that I found scampering in my backyard.

Oooh, a stink bug! lol! Nice shots, did you crop at all?

Macro is VERY addictive!!! I've actually got to the point now where I almost begrudge visiting friends if it clashes with what would normally be my time out shooting bugs and things, oooer! lol!

Thanks for the feedback. Ya I've always loved macro photography. It truly is a world of it's own. The reason why I recently upgraded to a dslr was so that I could eventually get a macro lens.

Yes the pic is cropped. Actually now that my interest in photography has grown, it makes me want to visit my friends even more. Visiting them gives me a new garden to hunt around in for more macro pics!

"Macros/micros: Flowers, bugs, eyeballs, eyelashes, small products, tchotchkes. Dew-covered spider webs, frost patterns on windowpanes. Great hobby lenses, as macro photographers are among the only happy photo enthusiasts. Also much utilized by photography buffs who like to test lenses."

This is a quote from Mike Johnston's former column on Steve's site http://www.steves-digicams.com/smp/08012004.html Notice the section I put in largebold text.

Thanks for the link Ira. I am probably still too new at this to get all of the humor but it still made for an entertaining read.
