Top 1000 Macro Pictures

Pollination Series 1-1

Shooting Carpenter Bees in the heat of the day is some of the most difficult macro photography that I’ve ever done! Hoping to get another chance to photograph them before the “macro season” is over. Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F16, 1/250, ISO

Wolf spider portrait

I kept a female back in college to try and get over my slight archnophobia (not truly phobic, just *really fucking leary*). You just undid all of that.

The eye of a Enyalius lizard

I use a reverse 28-35mm or close-up filter on other lenses, this lizard was with the 18-55 kit lens and a close-up from Raynox, don’t remember if +8 or +22, probably the first.

15 tiny mushrooms

They look like little jellyfish. It reminds me of [this](http://www.fimfiction-static.net/images/story_images/113523.png?1372460367)

Watch Parts

I have a friend that uses watch parts to make cool [steampunk type belt buckles and cuff links](http://www.etsy.com/listing/106607917/steampunk-square-bezel-cuff-links-matte).

Solitary Bee on a Dandelion III

Pretty much the same setup as the first images in this series, but I’ll list it all again here. Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single,

Fingerprint

so, I get where /u/Reads_Small_Text_Bot may have a place in this world, even though people can just zoom in if they can’t read the text, but /u/Makes_Small_Text_Bot and /u/Eats_Small_Text_Bot really seem worse than unneeded.

Colored Contact Lens – 5184×3456

The material used for colour contacts is very different than the material used in clear ones, the material can’t let air and water through as easily as clear ones. They starve your eye of oxygen. Which is vital to healthy eyes obviously.

Just proposed

That ring is one of those rings that catch your eye in the midst of many others. Simple, beautiful and perfect.

Cat’s claw

This cat obviously uses his claws way more than ours. He doesn’t like to scratch anything, just grows these super long needle claws that if unclipped will pierce through denim to skin every time he tries to jump into your lap.

Emerald moth.

This is why I subscribe to this subreddit. Because, I like nightmares. Seriously though, this is an incredible shot! Nice capture/find.

Bold jumper on a mossy post

This guy kept on looking RIGHT into the lens and jumping on it. I tried to get one head-on, but he always jumped into the MP-E’s lens hood before I could get a shot haha.

Printer papers

Fun fact, those surprisingly jagged edges are why papercuts hurt far more than is fair. The paper is actually shredding the skin, not just slicing it. I can provide a link to a slowmo Macro video explaining it if anyone is interested. It just
