I mostly photograph bugs, and they are not very co-operative. Therefore I take the photos free hand so I can follow the bug if it moves. It leads to a lot of wasted photos, but with digital cameras it does not matter so much.

Very nice macro shots Johan! Do you use a tripod?

Thanks Leana. They are so small it is only the colour that drew my eye.

The last photo looks like a child's toy. Love it! Nice spot Johan!
