    Got some cheap Viltrox extension tubes to try some macro work. Have to work a bit more with my manual settings, but I could get into this a bit. DSC05910. DSC05916. DSC05918. DSC05937. DSC05939.

    Like the first one with the blue sky reflected in the drops and the focussed sun spots.

    That is my favorite, I was amazed at how round the drops appear and the reflections.

    Those are good Gunny. You might want to consider including something that we can all know the size of as a reference. The first one seems strange because when we think of leaves we think that they could be several inches long, but it is obvious from the water drops that this isn't the case here.

    Great detail and color.

    It is fun to look around with a new perspective.

    I absolutely love macro. It is by far my favorite to attempt and play with. I like the drops in the first one too!

    1 and 4 are the ones I like the most.

    I bet you were smiling when you saw the wings on that insect!

    I gravitated more into Macro, it really changes how you look for subjects !

    Yes, seeing the wings made me smile, when I got the focus right, I smiled even more.
