    some what random macro pics

    I went out yesterday and snapped some macros of ants (okay, there is only 1 pic but there are two in it!) and plants around. click to see them, dial up users be warned. I made them links because when I previewed the thread they were a little to big.

    You're into wasps and stuff too? That's awesome. I really love the Bald Faced Hornet. Really cool insect. I found a dead one in the windowsill in a bathroom once and saved it, but then ended up throwing it away when my friends found out I had it and were making fun of me. Story over.

    Yup, I am into wasps. An interesting fact about the bald faced hornets (Dolichovespula maculata) is that they really aren't hornets. They are species of yellow jacket that make nests in high places instead of under ground. Vespa crabro is the only true hornet in North America and only lives on the East Coast. (there is some speculation that another Vespa is invasive to British Columbia.)

    Thats really funny that the scientific name for a hornet is Vespa, because, Vespa is the word for wasp in German.

    Hey dude, looks like you're having a good time with that camera. On the 4th picture, if you cropped out everything except the top left portion, and then toned down the exposure on the RAW file slightly, I think that photo would be even better. Are you shooting in RAW format?

    The ants look great, especially the big one on the left. With a 12 MP camera, I'm sure you have plenty of cropping room, so don't be afraid to really snip off a big chunk of the photo to make the macro look more impressive.

    Now go take some more pictures!
