For The Curious Ones:
Early images were taken with a Canon Rebel XTi and recently with a Canon 5D Mark II -- both with a Leica 100mm macro lens and adaptor. I try to shoot in bright sunlight at about 1:30 p.m. at 1/1000second and then exposure bracket at /8 or f/11 or f/16 at ISO 800. -- Doug Norkum

    Magnificent work.

  • Isn’t it interesting that when you compose certain subjects that you just know that it will come out the way you had envisioned it. This seems to be the exilar that keeps bringing us back to do more, to continue the quest for the unusually beautiful.
