    NICE! I'm no lighting expert (or any other kind of expert for that matter) but those all look excellent to me. I'm interested to hear what others have to say.

    Hi Jim,

    Great images, Jim: this is amazing with handheld light.

    2&3 make me think of Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors.

    Cheers,

    Thanks,Dave. I've been shooting macro for almost 3 years now.My shots early on were dissapointing.I've got static subject shots down pretty much now.Insects are another story.

    Thanks,Rick.I liked both the original and the remake."FEED ME!!"
    I'm very happy with the results I'm getting with this set up.Light weight enough that I can shoot for long periods without much fatigue.

    Give me that lens...now...or I will stamp my feet I suspect it has more to do with the photographer behind the shoe box though. Superbly executed images
