Nat & The Ladybird

Around three weeks ago, when it was still magnificently sunny, my mate Nat came round and we had a macro photo day.

Found A Bug!

We started off primly, with the humble 50mm macro which took the pic above. I love the 50mm for its naturalness, it’s easy to forget it’s a macro. And then it’s wonderful to be surprised by the close-focus ability when playing around.

My Name Is Gregor Samsa!

And then we moved on to the MP-E 65mm. This is a monster of a lens, weighs a ton and it’s very hard to use. Sooo… loads of fun! The ladybird pics were taken with the MP-E and I would like to thank the little critter for being such a fantastic model. 🙂
