Hi everyone!

I am completely new to this wonderful world of macro photography!

I have have an about an hour of shooting so far and I am really enjoying it...

ATM I only have some extension tubes but I am rather pleased with my initial results...

My highlight so far has been the jumping spider!

These are single images... Not that sharp yet but not bad... Any tips would be greatly received.

Can anyone identify the fly in number 2..

Lovely captures- especially good for first tries. #2 is a flesh fly Sarcophaga species.
