    You do chase alot of dragons, very cool shot, looks like the top one
    has its head turned around and has buck teeth.

    Most of my 36mm tube shots are around a foot away, then cropped some.
    I get too close or too much tubage dof becomes to shallow.

    Edit

    Like this DPR, was trying to include soft elements to give it a different feel

    Freaky shot Falcoln.

    Here's an ant. This bugger was about an inch long which made the shot possible with a normal macro lens.

    I think it had some parasitic tic's on it's head which is why it was not being normally aggressive with me.

    I (newbie) noticed a lot of or all of the macro shots are shot either using a Tamron or Sigma lens. I recently bought a Canon Rebel T1i and wondering what is the better lens in the $200.00 to $300.00. How are the Canon lenses? Would I be better off spending a little more on a better lens? I've been reading reviews and more I read the more confused I get. Seems like they are all slow focus.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
