This ladybug landed on my shirt today so I managed to transfer him/her to a piece of wood and capture a couple of macro shots of him/her.

15281
Approx 55mm, ISO 400, 1/60, f13

15282
Approx 24mm, ISO 400, 1/60, f13

Reversed, handheld 18-55mm kit lens

Fantastic macro.Specially because you use reversed lens and shot handhold.Very hard to get so sharp image with so tiny DOF.

Agree with Vyeko. Love that first one Iggy. Extraordinary results for the technique used.

I barely figured out how to mount my lenses the proper way, now you guys are doing this stuff ....

Excellent work, Iggy!

Very impressive Iggy - I have played with this technique a few times but always on a tripod due to focusing challenges. So cool that u did this handheld.

Thanks, Michael. Reversed lens at 24mm gets in pretty close :)
