Dear all!
I am very glad to join the community. I am new to photography in general (a bit more than a year), and after trying myself in different fields of photography i realised that i have always assumed macro special.
Here is my first stack i got after some dancing-around with a reversed Nikkon L-Nillor 50mm on bellows. It's a tiny bee (around 1 cm long) i found dead on my balcony.
Would be nice to hear some comments.
Thank you,
Alexander

I see a picture techically very well performed and esthetically very appealing.
I would expect it to be the product of a very experienced macro photographer.
I would be proud of it.

Thank you very much Troels. It does feels like a very warm welcoming indeed. Feel like more enthusiastic now. Technically that's a second effort, the first was a failure as i didn't have stable base, so it was really soft. The result i've achieved here is quite dependent on the DIY macrostand a made.

I second Troels words.. exactly what I think too, no need to repeat Very Happy
Be aware.. that kind of photos is very adictive...

What is a L-Nillor?.. do you mean EL-Nikkor ?

EDIT: for a bee you found dead it's pretty cean .. were you lucky? or did you clean it with Photoshop? (or any other editor) ...

TIP: dead beasties with long antenna use to look "dead" or "sleepy", if you want to get a more lively look do the shooting with the subject upside down and let the gravity straighten the antenna ... later just flip the photo upside down

Thank you for the words and for the tips. Yes, i meant Nikkor. I cleaned the bee with squirrel brush under the magnifying glass first, that removed almost everything, then cleaned a couple of flecks in photoshop, but just a little.
