Wohoo Rik, Martians discussing their next move to conquer Earth. :lol:

Hello neighbor :)

Love the poppy seed for its geometrical appearance! The hover fly (Große Schwebfliege (Syrphus ribesii)) is also very nicely done.

Hehe, new cam! :)

Like Danny a bigger part of my macro work is done using a monopod, no matter if I use 180 or 65 mm focal length :) Most useful for down and dirty monopod macro work, or if someth...
