Hey all, I got myself a new macro lens and I was playing with it for the first time ever. It's fun but definitely a bit of a learning curve (for me, a newbie at it). I took these without a tripod but I'm learning how valuable it'll be when I get one (hopefully soon!). Let's see if I can post these right....

These are lovely, Meghan. I like the third one best - with the light behind. You will love the tripod!

Your pictures are amazing! It's hard to believe that they were handheld. One can tell if my macros are handheld. LOL. I really love the 3rd one from the top.
