Your right on both counts, but I bet he just stands closer.

Beautiful pic amongst many, JudithAnn, a deserved winner - a warm depiction of a cold weather.

You've certainly set us a puzzler - so instead of the usual trying to depict things more clearly, we have to reverse thinking; should be an interesting week

Well I sure am glad that some of you feel it is a fine topic.....I love macro, and with the help of Hefty's advice, I just bought my first ever extention tubes.....I must confess, it was a lot harder then I thought, to get the right light and a sharp picture!!!

When one is learning something new.....it is so awesome to study and see the way others achive the task.

I love your work...just to think, all without a tripod

Thank you Jo for your compliment...

You bunch of pussies - get an entry in. Every week people dive in on the first day and I wait nearly as long as Kris right to the deadline but this time the roles are reversed and I'm in first while you lot wring your hands

I am sure you do but it's appropriate don't you think? Does it 'grow' on you?

I have just received a Tamron 90mm macro, so guess I should get it out and have a go......if I can fit it in with moving abroad on Friday! It's all a bit hectic at the moment!
