G'day marubex

Of course is 'qualifies' as macro ... "once you can see the whites of their eyes, you can shoot"

Your images are very similar to many macro shots I see [and often take] where I am let down by 'just-not-quite-enough' depth of field
However all four images are reasonably clear so I would deem them 'okay'

Regards, Phil

Thank you Phil. Do you think using smaller apertures would have helped?

G'day mate

Without the exif data being available it's hard to be exact about things
I often use on-camera flash for insects - it gives some extra sparkle, the flash speed is often 1/2000s so it's faster than a shutter speed etc etc etc

Maybe give it a try some time & compare images
Regards, Phil
