Gross me out

Let's see some of your most disgusting macro shots.  Let's try to make this the most feared thread on CR. :)

I'll start with two of mine.

Hi everyone,
I have been following CR for a few months now, but posting for the first time.

I thought this thread is a great idea, so thought id share a photo here.  Its nothing spectacular, as i am still relatively new to photography and just starting to develop my skills. 

I found this beautiful tree frog stuck to my window one night. Interesting perspective into a frog's life.

You sir, are disgusting. I don't have anything to contribute, but this thread made me laugh.  ;)

I'm curious - what the fly is sitting on (second shot) and how did you shoot it? :)

BTW: Why disgusting only in macro? :)

I've been told by a few people that this gives them "the willies".



Shot this wolf spider with a 60D and 60mm macro.  No fancy focus stacking or anything like that. :)

EDIT: Looks like this forum downsizes pictures with no option to "click and see full size" (a little odd for a photography site) so here's a link to the 1200 pixel version http://www.deviantconstrictors.com/assets/galleries/328/IMG_3924.JPG

Brilliant:) I took my first shot of this kind yesterday. He or she was no bigger than 1/2 cm from tail to head. I shot it with a Canon 100 F2.8L HIS USM on my 5D II. The picture has been cropped quite a bit, but it is okay for webresolution I think:)

I am adding another, taken with the same lens and camera. I doubt I would have had the guts to use a macrolens for this shot, had it not been for the protective glass between me and the snake:)

This lil' guy was in the bathtub of my new home a few months after I moved in. It's a handheld 1:1 shot with the 5DII mounted to the 180. The upper portion is a 100% crop; below is the full frame.

Bonus points for identifying him....

Cheers,

The fly was sitting on dog sh$#t. I used an MP-E 65 + MT-24EX to shoot it.
You don't have to stick to macro, but IMHO macro does it best. :)

You don't have to stick to macro, (..)

Regarding distance from lens to subject when shooting macro, I think I know what you mean in this case... :)
