Top 1000 Macro Pictures

Serrated Knife Blade

Thanks! You’ve got to use what you can afford. You can sometimes get great results from subpar equipment. I’ve been really happy with the results from this cheap-o setup. Plus, it’s something you can easily take with you. I can keep the bobby pin

Really weird, really tiny fungus.

I work at a garden center and they pop up in mulch and flower pots often. It’s always interesting to see how high up the tree trunks their little spore packets can stick. Sometimes 2-3 feet.

Pretty big Salticadae I found yesterday

Once you get to this kind of magnification, only a very thin line will be in focus. Standard rule for portrait photography is that the eyes should be in focus. Combine the two, you get this. Thing is though, you definitely are not able

Tortoise hatchling rear

Mantis Neck

I tend to find the neck of the mantis even more fascinating than the head when photographing them. So many interesting structures!

Crab {OC}

Great shot, and with the great resolution it can work as a wallpaper! Do you know what kind it is?

Long Horned Beetle II

Katydid’s Perspective, Accidental Success

Baseball stitches

now THAT’s what I call macro porn. not to be an ass or anything but a lot of times what sneaks in here isn’t quite cutting it for my tastes.

High-key jumping spider

The camera is a 5DII, the lens is an MP-E 65 f/2.8 1x-5x. The lighting is a single 270EXII fired via a Pixel Componor system. Since the spider was on a sheet of white paper, I got great lighting above and below. Natural light

Ant pushing a water droplet

Not a water droplet. water droplets sitting on top of water have to sit like this [\(link\)](, else they get absorbed when the water starts coming up the side like that.

30x photo of a house spider

>This 30x photo of a house spider was designated an Image of Distinction in the 2012 Nikon Small World Photomicrophotography Competition. Harold Taylor of Kensworth, Dunstable, United Kingdom, used image stacking to capture the image.

Grasshopper Taking a Selfie

It’s not really the glass -I could have taken that frame with the EF-S 60mm + extension tubes (or with a Nikon camera + Nikon’s 60mm macro lens + tubes). Although not as obvious as stopping a balloon in mid pop macro is a
