Having a bit of a practice in anticipation of getting my new macro lens next week (currently using a raynox and tubes)

These flowers are growing out of gaps between bricks in my garden wall.

This little fella was buzzing backwards and forwards on the flower in the first picture, can't have been more than a millimetre long!

Chased this little fella around the garden for 10 minutes before he stopped still

I confess I've taken a few cat pictures, but I promise never to insult my Olympus 60mm Macro lens with one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Couple of details from the garden today, first one inside a mirabilis flower, and the second one inside an hibiscus. Trying out a new homemade diffuser system. I want to spread the light a little more, make it less harsh and more toned. The toothpaste cap diffuser is fine for emergencies but need to change things out.

Feedback on the lighting would be appreciated :)

Funny, I was just working on a diffuser rebuild today (slight chance I might finally get out of town for a few days)... if you want to show-and-tell or just compare notes, there's a thread for that. There's nothing harsh going on in those shots, speculars look nicely subdued... I think I'll personally enjoy that look more on subjects with a little more inherent contrast, for this one I might move it a little further off-axis just for a little bit more definition... my two cents. :D
