We were out last weekend at Boyce Thompson Arboretum sharpening our macro skills. The first was taken with the Canon 100mm macro and the second with the Canon MP-E 65mm. This was the first time we tried the 65mm. Tough to get enough light and DOF.

I think these 2 pics give a new meaning to the phrase "Pain in the Butt".

Whoa Tammie, this really hurts... Excellent capture. I wonder if all assassin bugs use this point of entry.

That is what I love about photography. You suddenly see all these things other people simply walk past. I've noticed a change in my kids as well, they constantly point out bugs, pretty flowers and birds to me.

Thanks for sharing something so unusual!

Great quotes from Great Photographers:
"In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject. The little, human detail can become a Leitmotiv."
Henri Cartier-Bresson

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."
Dorothea Lange
