3rd place
Honeybee #31 by ryzst

ryzst: Thank you for the nice comments.

It takes some time to retrain your vision for macrophotography & how to achieve good results. For me, the reduced depth of field (DOF) continues to be the main challenge. And if that wasn't enough, I bought the EF 12 II Extension Tube for the 100mm lens to increase magnification past the 1X it can currently achieve. That will decrease the DOF even more and also eliminate focusing to infinity. Ideally, I'd like to be able to shoot about 0.5-2X

4th place
Ladybug by Eubeen

tigger3: WTG! Wendell congrats on your contest placement. Tigs♥ =^..^=

LynEve: Excellent composition Wendell - I like this very much for its elegance and simplicity

tib: I remember when I was young and thought these little bugs were so wonderful. Now they are all over my house in droves! Sometimes I would swear I've even been bitten by a few! I like this shot Wendell, most of us wouldn't think of shooting a ladybug on our desk lamp. Great detail on the bug and I really like the bright light and the darkness in the background.
