I'm sorry to go on, but these really are some of the best photos I've ever seen! Fabulous colour and detail.

I've never seen such good photos either. My husband says you must have a very good camera.

Your Macro photography is excellent - if you haven't tried selling some of these you might consider posting them on some of the online pro websites - with the range you have you may get a calendar! Can I ask what equipment you are using??

thank you. i do love photography and do enter a few of the online contests. i have tried selling on shutterpoint.com and managed to sell a few pics, but there are millions of good photos out there so the chances of even getting people to look at my pics on shutterpoint are slim! i am really not in it for the money anyway i just enjoy takeing pics to share with everyone. ;o)
i use a Nikon D70s with a sigma 105mm f2.8 macro lens for most of the pics on here.

This picture is too perfect! You stopped me in my tracks!! Lovin' it! The iridescent color on the wings kicks booty! Now I have to go look at all your pics!

I thought so Rachelscot. My daughter bought a Nikon D80 not so long ago and her pics are amazing. The enlargements of each part of the picture is an eyeopener. You can zoom in on each picture itself and I cannot begin to comprehend how that all works. This again is a fantastic photo of the hoverfly and the flower it is on. Even the little fine hairs are visible. I know what you mean out there are millions of magnificent pictures and it would be hard to compete. Best to just enjoy them yourselves and let us gape at them. No matter how good your equipment is and how many lenses etc you have, it is still the photographer who takes the shot and you have to hold the camera still and compose a nice picture before you press the button. I think you certainly are very talented. Congratulations.
