Please could you give the details of equipment used and how the pictures were set up and taken?

Thanks.

Thx, what i like about macro/close-up is the detail that one normally don't see with the naked eye.
I can't wait for the summer, this is when the garden comes alive.

Lovely little shells, some smaller than my pinkie (NO... not that one!) nail.

Be careful of the words you say.

Not really my kind of photography, but I have tried a few in the past.... not very successful though   :dontknow:
(but the praying matis did win a competition...beginners luck :deal:)

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Here is a few more....

The first one is just something you dont often see. The male and female Crab spiders with the female catching a fly. Another fly comes to investigate.


This one is called" Mating season...


This Hover fly posed nicely..


Imagine if I was big......


Green eyes..
