I was going to post these in my bee thread from yesterday, but these are 100000x better.

I want to thank Iggy for the advice last night. I set a dime on the ground and practiced with different settings and lenses. I realize my macro filters are easier to use and make better shots with my 18-55 lens, instead of my 75-300 lens.

Yesterday I took 120+ shots and had two images half worth a damn. Today I took about 70 shots and have about 15 good shots and about 10 great shots (IMO)

I still cannot believe I took these. I feel like a hunter with his first kill.

Here are a few of my favorites!!!!!!

I don't know what you did differently but this is working very well! Awesome results. #4 in the first set and #2 in the second post are my favourites but they're all really good. Great perseverance and effort!

#4 is my favorite as well, but #1 should have been because of the wings, but it is just OOF.

You sure are taking on difficult subjects when learning macro. Subjects that don't move are much easier to learn on :)
