The Magician at Dawn by alexgphoto The Magician at Dawn by alexgphoto
This little guy was only a few millimeters in size, yet through my Macro lens he looked like a character from a Tim Burton film or Terry Pratchett's Discworld. :)

Beautiful shot, out of curiosity, what macro lens are you using or did you use for this photograph?
I am wanting to buy myself a new macro lens as I find the one I do use does not achieve what I want it to do.

Thanks!

Thanks!
This was taken with 100mm Canon. It is an excellent lens and I find people often don't make the most of it. But too get even closer, google Raynox.

Thank you so much.. I actually do have the 100mm Canon Macro lens, but as you have seen I get no where as close to my images as you do. Thank you once again for the information and I definitely will be looking up for that.
Just fingers cross, I can possibly buy one.... ;)
