I know, it's not real macro but I still have some fun. Trying out my new-to-me 60d with 50mm 1.4 on a 13mm tube

Looking good, especially the little grasshopper.

Are you using large apertures for a reason?... Using available light maybe? The spider shot would have been nicer with a deeper depth of field, is why I'm asking. But still, nice shots.

Sadly, it's pretty bleak out today. Grey skies and not much light but I'm about to go outside again and attempt more. I need to find a balance between going smaller, and not getting to much noise from higher ISO's. I admit I go the lazy handheld approach because I honestly don't understand how anyone can use a tripod and stack shots when I can't even get a bunch to stay still for a second.

I don't use a tripod very often myself. I'd miss a majority of my shots if I tried that.

I went for round 2. Still looking pretty bleak outside, but I gave it a go attempting to bump up my ISO range and attempted getting away from the wide apertures. The wind was causing everything to bounce around but I got a few shots before getting a gnat in my eye and fleeing.

Thank you all! I have a long ways to go, but part of the fun is progressing along the way. I'm really wanting to save up for the 100mm macro one of these days. I'm always blown away by the stuff I see here and it gives me a nice visual goal to chase.

Thanks!

Thanks for the ID on it as well. I don't what any of these backyard finds are, I just really don't want to get bit or stung in the process. I had a "moment" the other week. I went out in the woods looking for stuff to shoot in my backyard and when I came out I felt a tickle on my neck. As I turned to the left to see what it was, a massive black and yellow garden spider went from my neck to my left cheek and my eye.

Being the man of nature that I am, and with my camera strapped to my right hand, I proceeded to punch myself in the face with my left hand in what I could only describe as "seizuresque" in style while the woods echoed the loudest F bomb ever.

I really didn't want to kill it, I just FTFO in the moment as I saw my life flash before my eyes as a spider was about to be on my eye. I have chills while typing this.

I never harm bugs unless very poisonous or if they attack my face or junk. I really need to learn what is all in my area a bit more. So long as I can keep some space between us, I'm good.

Love the spider shots. So sharp, they just pop out of the pictures.

Thank you! I was having a hard time with the wind making me think I wasn't going to get anything too sharp.
