Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and leave a comment let's try Mister Linky. Don't forget to check out each others' macros.
That's one ugly bug. And one beautiful macro.I feel like an extra in Starship Troopers.
Wow, that thing is pretty scary looking!!
Ouch! All these poky things and an armed bug, too!
This little guy looks like he is still wearing his Halloween skeleton mask. Wonderful detail! I think I'll call him Spike. :-)As for Mr. Linky, I put my link there for part 2 of the Butterfly Palace macros.
Amazing. How do you get that close to the creature?
Help !! Monsters amongst us !! Marvelous shot !!
Great captures. What is this guy? I'm sure that I don't really want to meet him.
BEAUTIFUL BUG! AMAZING photos!
You are the macro Queen. Hail. That's just crazy.
Just plain AWESOME pics! From you...yes....the macro Queen!!
just on my way to bed. Now I will have nightmares. (:
My first Macro Monday submission. Lisa, your bug photos are just amazing! What is it? And how did you get him to pose so nicely?
My goodness, he's a bit freaky. I wonder what he was thinking as you came at him with that monster sized lens...he was probably frozen in place! Wonderful shots!
I did post my first Macro Monday, btw. It's a bit silly, but what can I say?!
Once again, gorgeous shots!WOW!
I only saw a little bit of your macro and it was enough for me...sorry I didn't wait for the complete upload, I am very scared of these things....bwaaaaahhhhHappy Macro Monday anyways! my pic is posted :)
As always, Lisa, your macro portrait is gorgeous. This guy looks like he's working with you.
Macro genius, Lisa, as usual! I haven't tried my own macro photos yet (other than a few with my parrot, whose contribution was to try to bite the camera). But these pics have made me look more closely at the details in my surroundings - odd angles, neat shadows etc. I hope to join in one day!
You are a genius indeed!!! I don't think any of us can ever top that, but at least we're having fun trying! I know I am!Lovely shots Lisa! Out of this world!
Somehow, upclose they are cuter. ;0) I actually remembered this week!
Those are just wonderful. What type of lighting do you use if any.
wow!!! i'm very very impressed! awesome shots!
Oh My Goodness - that is fantastic!!!!!!
Wow...you really take amazing photos!
my macro is up. good morning lisa!http://3yrplan.typepad.com/soeursdujour/
Hi Lisa, My Macro is up, the Sir Linky seemed to work! I took a soils class the semester I was supposed to take bugs..so I have no idea what kind of bug you captured but he is beautiful in a buggy kind of way! :)
Every week I try to prepare myself for something icky & you always get me to cringe. EEEEK.
Your picture is the stuff of nightmares, I think.I'm participating in Macro Monday, so I'll be seeing you around.
Wow, that is AWESOME, and puts my macros to shame!
Great shots, Lisa! I especially like the first one, and I don't think he's ugly at all. I'm amazed at how, when we get close enough and allow ourselves to really look, these creatures that we normally find so repulsive are really not so different from other more familiar forms of life and also how beautiful they can be.
I played and posted it on the Mr Linky List. I've been thinking about putting that on my photo challenges too - let me know how it works out.Hope you're feeling better :-)
ok...better late than never...:)
Wow! How do you do that?!
Wow! These are really awesome, you made the ugly looks so beautiful!
I LOVE this set of MM! He's actually kinda pretty!
Ackk! But loved it. Missed MM this week, hope to show next week.
This is a great shot. I am envious of your talent.
Easy for YOU to say ;--)These are WONDERFUL photos!Hugs and blessings,
