Hopping

I like to make macro pictures that are not sterile, but more pleasing to the eye.
This one was taken again with my Sigma macro lens (105mm 2.8) on my Nikon DSLR.

No post-processing at all on this one. Click to enlarge for more details.

A few days ago I felt like taking a few macro shots, so I put on my Sigma 105mm 1:2.8 macro prime lens on one of my Nikon DSLRs and just went outside.
That was a good decision as I managed to get some decent pictures (click to enlarge; others to follow in the next weeks).
I really love this lens. In combination with a Nikon body you get an incredible sharpness (sometimes it can be brutal), no post processing required whatsoever in this regard.
When I use it for portraits (headshots) I really have to soften everything (you know what I mean).

BTW: Thanks to all new followers on various Social Media and of course thanks to all those who are still there after so many years.

Cheers,

Organism 1
I was at a friend’s birthday party and luckily I had my favorite lens with me, a nifty fifty macro.
Here are two shots…

And to quote Alan Watts:

“There’s an interdependence between flowers and bees — where there are no flowers there are no bees, and where there are no bees, there are no flowers. They are really one organism. And so in the same way, everything in nature depends on everything else.”
