For starting 2021, shoot a few macro to share. They are definitely not perfect and I still have lot to learn.

a few images from the weekend
I don't get it. You just strolled outside and took shots like that? Several of them!

There is macro magic happening and I don't understand it. I own the same lens, a more expensive camera from the same manufacturer and my macro shots just aren't remotely comparable.

You're finding subjects, keeping them still enough to shoot; I can't imagine you're focus stacking, yet you have excellent depth of field and the focus is absolutely spot on. There's witchcraft at work here and I want to learn it :(

Very nice shots as usual.
With shots like the top & bottom ones with what appears to be a totally black background, is that done in post?
Just wondering how you get totally black backgrounds
Thanks much!
The black/dark BG is due to a combination of low ambient light, low exposure setting and usage of external flash.
Kurt's blog post is one of the best resources out there - http://orionmystery.blogspot.com/2009/07/full-flash-macro-photography-3-things.html

Beautifully done as usual! You certainly have larger, more colourful and more interesting bugs than we do in the UK!
Thanks!
blessed to have amazing biodiversity around

You're missing the special device from the movie men in black :D
Thanks...I find reaching the location early in the morning when the temps are lower definitely helps in approaching them. Choosing the right aperture and getting perfectly perpendicular to the subject helps in getting the optimum detail

As always stunning photos @Hayath :) Thanks for sharing.
Thank you!

Wonderful, as usual, Jaime. I particularly like the caterpillars.
Thanks :)

Fantastic as always.
Thank you!

Great shots! How did you get so close to the lizard?
Thanks!
Got lucky while I caught it basking...careful approach helped. However, with close-ups like these - it's all upto luck and co-operation from the subject
