Hi everybody, just joined Macro photos.  I'm looking forward to some good discussions on the subject of macro photography.  I can't afford the equipment to do any MICRO shots, mores the pity.

I think you are a little ahead of me when it comes to photoshop. I can do the basics, but ......  that's about it for me.

I shoot D7000. The macros was done with a standard VR 18-105 mm lens. I used a +1 and +2 magnifier lens for the bee. The Mantis I used the +1, +2 and +4 magnifier. I took about 15 shots and then stacked them in photoshop. Along with the dandy lion. Shot in RAW. Added some detail extractor in a photoshop filter to the images.

the D800 is at the top. the more expensive D4 costs a lot more and shoots faster, but doesn't have as many mega pixels.  I don't shoot sports so this one works great for me.  I just shoot for enjoyment these days.  mainly scenic and so forth.  my D800 only has about a thousand shots on it.  I shoot my sony nex 6 far more.  super fun camera to work with and makes great images.

Thanks Mike,

looking at it here at work it looks a little too vibrant for my tastes.  he was covered with pollen and got used to me being close.

here is what I had going on.

Nikon D800

Nikon 105mm micro

kenko extension tubes (all 3 baby).

Thanks Mike, I was lucky with the Butterfly. He was on the ground and stayed there for a long time and I was able to get almost right up on him.
