I really need to buy a book so I can identify caterpillars! They're one of the few things not covered by "Complete British Wildlife".My old Samsung camera has stopped working. :-( I took this pic with a borrowed Nikon and I'm not impressed by the quality of macro shots. Can anyone recommend a cheap digital compact that takes decent macro pics?
I identify all of my animals on the internet. It's sometimes an ordeal but I usually get it done. That's a pretty unusual looking caterpillar. I like all the little bumps. I don't really have any experience with cameras other than my Canon Powershot A590. The ratings on it are pretty good. It seems to work well enough, and there are add-ons to get better macro shots. i've been looking at them lately myself.
I can see why you aren't happy with the macro on the Nikon. Still, love the shot and that caterpillar has some pretty colors and cool little bumps.
He's a cutie with all those spots. You've taken some wonderful photos.
I love the spots. Never seen one this color.
I wish I could John but I too have been searching and searching. I can't even afford to buy a macro lens right now.My dream is the new Sony A-900. but, that is way down the road.By the way I think your macros are wonderful!!Jackie
