It was a beautiful sunny day in Sydney today so I decided to go down to the Sydney Botanical Gardens to work on my macro photography.
I had hoped for more insects but there were only flies, ants, spiders and a couple of bees. There was a nest of wasps but I was to chicken to go near them. I guess the bugs don't like winter too much.
All these shots were taken hand-held with my Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm macro lens with a dual SB-800 flash set-up. My technique is improving with each outing but still needs quite a lot of work. I have to investigate and find out the best places to take shots of insects.
