    Another Bug!

    Found this very cool bug while taking pictures of my just bloomed Lily! I think I'm really leaning towards saving up for a macro lens now! Pictures like this make me really wish I had one to get in close and sharp!!
    Think this macro stuff is addicting though! Better start saving now!
    Another  Bug!

    Now that's what I call a fluffy bug!

    Has it collected that stuff, or is it part of the bug?

    Weird Kori, really weird.

    Cheers, Dave

    Nice shot...could it be a bug in sheep's clothing?

    You have managed a crisp image there, and with difficult exposure settings to contend with.

    It is a good example of insect camouflage which would be hard to detect on a white flower; and it looks too strange to be eaten.

    When you do get a macro lens, make sure it is big enough for insect use. 150 mm is popular but I use 180 mm and still want more! And then there is the tripod, etc. Plus a load of reference books to identify all those little critters.

    And then there is all that time spent looking for the best sites.

    Funny - the white furry stuff is weird! Never seen a bug like this before!

    Thank you! I have the tripod.... one down! We always seem to want more than what we have! I really thought I would be content with my "beginners" camera, but now I am wishing I would have bought a step up.... I honestly didn't think I would get so hooked on taking pictures - it's fun to learn and a great feeling to get compliments on them too!
    I think I will be saving up for a few months yet.... they seem to be a little steep in price!
