Here are some recent makeshift macros... not happy with the spiderlings because it is a little out of focus but I really liked just how close up I got with them and I was happy with the composition.

These are cool Iggy! Seems like you are really digging the macros! Time to start saving a few pennies for a dedicated macro lens which is on sale now at thecamerastore. Not cheap at just over 6 bills, but cheaper than many top quality lenses that ring in at close to 2k.

That's a great deal - The Nikon equivalent was closer to a grand when i bought it years ago.

Thanks for the tips... my next purchase, however, will likely be a body upgrade if I can ever save the money for it. My daughter is heading to college in the fall which is gonna cost me a bundle!

I agree with you - very nice composition, and I love the colour of these tiny guys.

Very nice set of macros. You can look for Tamron lens 90mm 2.8 1:1 macro too. I am very happy with this one. Look comparison visa Canon and Nikon lens.Maybe you will be surprised.
