Great macros. The hairy spider is so ugly, he’s almost cute! 😉
Thanks Gunta. I think he’s cute too…in a creepy kind of way!
I love your macro images! So much beauty when you look real close!
Thank you! I’ve come to appreciate nature so much more since viewing it up close!
Just stunning, Susan…although I could have done without Charlotte and her off-spring.! 🙂
The detail on that green dragonfly is amazing.
Thank you! Seems you are not alone here…not many fans of spiders here!
Lovely except for the spiders! Yuck I hate spiders!
I hear ya! I’m not a big fan either but since I’ve been photographing them lately, I have a little more tolerance for them. This one was actually kind of cute…in a weird sort of way!
breathtaking! do you use a macro lens? so great the detail is amazing.
Thanks Tracie! I’ve been using a set of close up lenses. Hope to someday get a good macro lens.
Thanks so much Amy!
These are really beautiful macros, Susan!
Thank you Lisa!
Wow – some really wonderful images of bugs here – even though I’m terrified of them in real life! I like them on your blog, perhaps it’s therapy for my fear!!!? 😀
Maybe I have a new calling….therapist! Interesting…curing people’s fears through photography! Thanks Suzy!
Wow! These are exquisite! Bravo.
Thank you Anita!
Susan! Those are some incredible photos…wow, that one with all the eyes (are those eyes???)…it’s totally freaky. Great photos!
Those spider pics are a little creepy and it’s funny because I’m afraid of spiders but there’s something about having a camera to my eye that makes me fearless. Thank you Carol!
These are lovely photos.
These are remarkable macros! I have never ever would be able to take such fantastic macros. This is a pure art!
Such a nice compliment Kaya, thank you so much!
You’ve convinced me. I need a macro lens. These are seriously incredible shots. Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you so much! It’s pretty amazing what you can see through a macro lens!
I was impressed with your dragonfly shot, until I got to the spiders. Ah, I hate spiders! But the other photos are great!
I’m always a little hesitant about posting the spider pics! Happy you liked the other photos – thank you!
Some people love spiders, so you shouldn’t deprive them. 🙂
I haven’t come across any of those people yet!
I love all of them …. except for the photo with all the spiders. I can handle a single spider, but lots of them give me the heebie jeebies! The dragonfly is a stunner!
Ha! Seems you are not alone here Shirley! I confess that those babies gave me the heebie jeebies too! Much more fun photographing the dragonflies! Thanks Shirley!
how do you do this? beyond beautiful…I’m at a loss for words
You are far too kind! Thanks so much!
So pretty…I love the crisp detail…wonderful macros, Susan. 🙂
Thank you Scott!
Of course. 🙂
I’m sure I’ve asked this before lol! But what photo editing program do you use? And are you using a zoom in lens?
I use two different online editing programs – Pixlr and Ipiccy. Someday I’ll probably break down and get Photoshop but these programs are pretty decent for now. I do use a zoom lens for many shots. It’s been the lens I use most, the best purchase I ever made!
Wow really? Yours are some of the best of all my bloggers! Do you have to pay for the programs?
You are too nice! Both of those editing sights are free! They are also easy to use…and a lot of fun to play around with! Pixlr has a few different programs, I mostly use Pixlr Express.
Awesome!! I am definitely looking into them 😀 thank you!!
Great! Hope you have fun playing with them!
Thank you so much Theresa!
