Indian paintbrush wildflowers.   Shot using T1i and 60mm EFS macro.   Let me know what you think :)

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

Some really great shots here and there, nice work :)
I am still saving for a dedicated macro lens so for now I am experimenting with the poor-mans macro options. I don't really like using tubes (it doesn't feel safe to me in conjunction with the weight/size of my zooms) and the close-up filters really do degrade quality profusely. Either way, here are a few experiments with a <5$ 10dioptre close-up filter from ebay. Got bored while having tea in the garden of my in-laws so its all handheld @70mm - (no stacking obviously).

Hi! Very nice colours. I would try to concentrate my photo on one aspect of the scene rather than everything. For example, one particularly well formed flower or some aspect of a flower (i.e.: petal, anther, stem) that really seems to pop out at you. That way you have a more central 'theme' to grab the viewers attention.

From last summer (no bees here yet this year).  Not quite macro but it is a flower and a bee.

Thanks Sporgon.  I think flowers are challenging to get that wow factor as opposed to birds.  You do well.

Here's some more experimenting with light and flowers.

Tried my macro setup for hiking - handheld EOS M with (crfm1) 22mm + FOTGA 16mm extension tube at f/8 ISO 400 on sunny day, (crfm3,crfm4) EF-S 55-250 IS STM at 250mm + 500D closeup lens at f/11 ISO 200 on cloudy day.  Resized 50%.

Wow, this is a fantastic thread! Such amazing work, from everyone!

I can't wait till the next round of flowers bloom in my yard. I haven't had any flower macro action for over eight months. :P
