Bugs, lizards, snakes, spiders, insects...some love them, some loathe them. Whatever the case, they do make great photographic subjects. This should hopefully be a good thread for the macro crowd in particular.

This shot below is a good example of what happens when you leave a door open on a hot night in Queensland. First come the insects who get into the light fittings, followed right after by the Geckoes...like shooting fish in a barrel.

I went to try out my new 45-200 yesterday, so not really a macro, but I had caught some creepy creatures anyway, so I would like to share them with you :smile:

Mole Cricket.

Just rescued this little fellow from the tiled kitchen floor and returned him to a more suitable patch of soft ground outside.

Not cute by any means but beautifully adapted to his subterranean way of life.

First moth capture of the year

I ran my moth trap for the first time this year a few evenings ago on a mildish night, caught nothing. Now with colder nights I've had my first moth of the year outside the window. I eventually enticed it in and it then hid in my bathroom for 30 hours. Now having been photographed it's hiding in my kitchen :smile:

With one leg missing, I suspect that this little t. duellica has already had an encounter with the cat. We have an endless supply of these from a nest in our gas meter box. The ones clever enough to stay away from the cat can grow to quite enormous proportions.

Here's a few pictures I took on my vacation... These are the pictures that made me wanna buy some really sharp legacy lenses. I guess I had a "fear" for manual focus lenses before but while taking these shots I learned that macro shooting is soooo much more fun with manual focus. :biggrin:

All the pics are shot in RAW and then edited in Lightroom & Photoshop (unfortunately)...

EDIT: At least the first picture is shot handheld (maybe even the first three...) and rest is with a tripod.
