I could just tell!! I'm too scared to do it with my 5D, but I did it quite a lot with my 60D and 70-200 f/4Very nice images. However, i feel the shallow DOF is overdone in the first image ... seems to have turned into an abstract. Took me a more than a few seconds to figure out what the image was about.Thank you for the feedback

The photo was made with a flipped lens, so I didn't have control over aperture. That's why I bought an extension tube recently to cover this type of shots
Though I feel that the image is special due to its extraordinarity. Anyway, I'll take into account what you said and will probably replace the photo with something more interesting
Was loads of fun and didn't realise how close I could until I could actually see the ants that were on flowers I was taking macros of!
I'm positive there was a trick to change the aperture but it requires you to use live view mode and change the aperture with the lens attached to the camera and then you take the lens off and work with that.
Love all the shots and it's really quite and inspiration to me!
