Default 20D GETS CLOSE !

One old adage about photography suggests that you should
always try to "get closer." One way to do that is to use a
long lens. Another way is to actually get close to your subject.

So with that in mind I took these pics this morning.

Wow - great pix, Annika.

Noce shot - I haven't seen any in a long time...and very hard to shoot
as they don't stay still - always jutting out of frame, behind the
stem, limb, branch, leaf, whatever.

Yeah, that's exactly what he was doing. I had to put my hand on the
other side of the stem to get him to come around.

Nothing worse than flash used for macro-photography to destroy the image. They
might as well have been taken in a staged lab setting with dead specimens.


If they were dead then I wouldn't have needed the flash.
Without flash you are talking about long exposure times. Not such a
good idea when shooting handheld and your subject is on a leaf.

Oh yeah, here's a weather tip:
If you are ever sweating on a hot, humid day just get out the super
macro lens and try shooting bugs or flowers. It is guaranteed to make
the wind blow a nice steady breeze.

It was a very early effort for me. Though I daresay the truth is
somewhere in the middle of our shots...
