Astrid, you show a collection of bugs! The third to last photo there are two of them eating the flower petals ...brrr,
bad creatures. Nice macros!

Hi Nadezda
I have SO much to learn with this lens but it's a lot of fun already. I'm enjoying it.

Your macro photos are lovely! A macro lens is on my wish list too (along with a lot of other things!), there is a whole new world opening up when you can get that close :-)
Have a great week, take care, Helene.

Fun with the macro...great effort.

Hi Helene
I saved my pennies and watched for a Sale! Am having a lot of fun with it. Hot humid week coming up here with no rain. Gotta put the sprinkler on every evening.

Thanks Layanee! Who would have thought that one hobby (gardening) would lead to another (photography)?

Lovely! I have both white dawn and new dawn climbers. I love them both.

I love this post! There is so much to see in the macro world! My camera can zoom in close but it's not really macro; I wish it were!
