    Wow, those macros are impressive. How long did you stay there looking for the perfect shot?

    thanks guys for the comments (as for the aphid right after I posted i saw that little bugger lol it ruins the pic somewhat)

    ok now for answers...

    Dr. Wurm:
    I use a 18-55 mm lens and then I use the on camera editing software to crop the pics

    Mr. Truncata I bent down focused- (both manual and auto on most of the) the manual pics are a little more blurry lol) -then took the pic took a few mins later i have a perfect macro not long at all lol

    no i didnt get that close to the plant to get the lens sticky.

    and yes the sundew is being seperated from the others and treated.

    thanks for all of the nice comments,
    matt

    Very nice shots.

    It's funny how macro photography can reveal things to you. A plant that has aphids, there's actually an invisible spider thread, etc, etc. Very fun. I love macro photography, even despite all of the frustration it causes. :P

    BTW, the first 2 pictures are actually the exact same picture.

    You'll have to let me know how you CONTINUE to like it.

    I am pretty disappointed in Nikon. Not sure I'd ever buy another one. :-/

    Your photos are great though!

    Canons better *chant*

    It helps allot if you practice taking pictures manually, you get better at it as time goes on and it just becomes more rhythmic and natural to you.
