    Metallic beetle

    Here is one of many shots of a metallic beetle that I saw this last Summer. Dunno what it is, but I thought it had an interesting color and shape. looked to be made of slightly pitted copper. So glossy that you can almost make out me reflected on it's shell as I bent down to take the pic.

    OOPS, didn't realize it would come out so large, Want me to resize? Done, better now

    Yes please on the resize (or even crop so the beetle is still large).

    Nice colours.

    Yep These really stood out when walking past them.
    I couldn't get over how metallic they were. looked like some kind of jewelry.

    At least the insects seemed to love the stinking hot summers day today.

    Falconest - this is superb work
    I am curious - you got this with the Sigma 70 - 300 hand held??
    I find that lens is hard to hand hold on close ups as it is sooo telephoto
    on macro - also is this a crop now?
    Lovely and sharp - really well done

    I'm having second thoughts about posting that shot now. It doesn't look half as nice on this other monitor. The bee was sharp full size but cropped down like this it's not. I think I should have composed further to the right as well.

    I think every season is bug season for us, at least if you're willing to shoot bees.

    Widow spider

    Great thread!! I came across this thread recently, and had to block off the better part of an evening for viewing every single page of it.

    My contributions... All were shot with a Canon 50D, Canon 100mm F2.8 Macro and reversed 50mm F2.0 Sears (Rebadged Pentax K-mount, I believe). The Dof is extremely thin. I was aiming for the eyes mostly. Feedback greatly appreciated.









    I made my own reversing ring by removing the glass from 58mm and 52mm UV filters, then pressing the 52 inside of the 58. Thankfully they fit very snugly by friction alone. I tried using my Canon 50mm F1.8 reversed, but actually found the old Sears lens to be sharper and with more contrast. Thank goodness for garage sales, eh?

    Thanks for looking.

    No. Actually that shot was taken with my now semi-retired Fuji S700. That piece of gear seemed to be biased toward macro work. I didn't get the Nikon until this Dec.
    Thanx for the compliment.
