IF YOU ARE MISSING MY POSTS

http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/1041_image_18.jpg Thank you, I much appreciate the feedback......just what I needed. My simple to construct DIY reflector/ diffuser works extremely well, more so since I replaced the kitchen foil with three pieces of plastic mirror. These increase the f...

UNDERWORLD WARRIOR

http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/1041_image_16.jpg I enjoy discovering what lies beneath the half logs I deliberately place in the darker corners of my tiny back garden. Invariably, it will be Woodlice, Millipedes , or, the odd, fast moving Centipede. Yesterday, it was the ubiquitous W...

REACHING FOR THE TOP

When hunting for Macro subjects I often look in dark-damp places for Woodlice, Millipedes and Centipedes etc. Late yesterday evening, whilst testing a modified DIY diffuser I happened to notice movements on our large Rosemary shrub.........on looking much closer I could see a fair number if Woodlice...

Controlled approach

http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/1041_image_14.jpg I got lucky with my timing and focus the other evening, dozens of bees were working in and around our corn flowers.
