I was just bringing the milk in when I spotted this little chap on my pyracantha. I dashed in and got camera, macro lens and tripod. I still find macro work very hit and miss but these aren't a total disaster. I don't know why but peering through the macro always gives me a headache!

oh he's very colourful but really, I don't like htem on my washing! I have been using super macro mode on my old Fuju S7000 and I'm loving it, forgot how easy that camera is to use!

HiCj, well you and your cam+macro-lens were there on the right time!!! very well done and a good shot, I like how a macro lens is working, I bought one just before I left for Italy, but did not bring it with me, i still feel sorry that I didn't.
Btw I feel OK ,thanks for asking:)

Great shots though. I don't have a macro lens and can only get so close. Never thought about the short depth of field causing headaches.

He looks like what we used to call "stink bugs" because if you messed with them they made this dreadful smell and if it got on you it takes ages to come off.

Nice macro's!!
