Enjoying shooting in this "winter", happy to be finding arthropods in decent numbers.
Living in the tropics does have it's own set of perks :D

Another nice set of images. I envy your selection of subjects. I'm struggling to find something to practice on.

Thanks much :)
Pretty lucky to find what I do here


The story behind the blue BG on the jumper is interesting. We were walking along a series of fence posts when I was hoping I could find something that would sit still for me to practice on..Lo and behold! I find this tiny jumper sitting on the blue fence post, pretty much at eye level and a solid surface to rest my left arm on to stabilize myself :D

Wonderful photos. Spectacular shots in the slide show.
These creatures look terrific on the 21'' iMac. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely photos, Hayath, as always. I'm looking forward to this spring and a new season of insects. I'm not in the least bit jealous you have them all year round. Sigh :D
haha..thanks!
Looking forward to your finds during spring.

Very nice app photographs! Your work does inspire trying out macro photography. Thanks for sharing
Thank you!
You must give it a try, can be surprisingly cheap and addictive :)

Another fascinating and beautiful series Hayath.
Thanks for sharing, and putting the video up.
All very nice
Thanks much!

Really nice captures.... What is the minimum focus distance with those setups?.... My macros are all taken with a Nikon DSLR and an older manual focus 105mm macro lens. I would think you would have had to be right on top of them...
