Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf and take an insect view of its plain.
Henry David Thoreau

    WOW, just WOW!

    What lense(es) do you use?

    • CherryPie says:

      Thank you :-)

      I use a compact camera Canon PowerShot A640. No extra lenses but it does have advanced features which I do use.

      I know there are more options and more possibilities with an SLR camera but because they are so much bigger I would probably leave it at home more often than not.

    I wonder if Thoreau had an idea there would be such incredicle macro photography like this to bear him up?!!!
