Mark another superb image! How long must you spend waiting for images such as these to appear in the viewfinder … you must be a patient man! I’m inspired to take some macro photos … maybe even this weekend.
Nice close up. Composition is great too.
Fantastic shot. I really like your work.
Thanks for the comments guys. You are right Peter, it does take a lot of patience to get these shots and you’ll often find me down on my hands and knees stalking insects in our garden. I also take a ridiculous amount of shots to get only one or three usable images. I think for this one shot I took about 70 in total.
Hard to do, I spend ages stalking and now they pop in uninvited when I’m after other creatures. This is wonderful, St Focus was watching over you.j
Wow! That’s a fantastic shot
Absolutely a great shot, great timing, well done
Nice, if you dont mind me asking, what camera do you use/lenses as the clarity is amazing. I’m guessing its a canon !!!
Hi Brian – this was taken with a Canon 350d with the 100mm macro lens attached. Entry level camera but it is the lens that gives the clarity results.
