Nature's patterns

It was sitting on the glass door which gave a nice reflection. I used a magnifying glass infront of my camera lens to get close enough to photograph the texture on the insect :)

mohib: Thank you, this was an experiment to see if a magnifying glass improves anything. The insect was about 1-1.5 cm long and about 5mm wide.

mei: Thanks, it was kind of difficult not to scare the "Green dude" away, I moved very slowly to get the camera lens close to it. A couple of people walking by asked me if there was a break-in in our office because of the way I was sitting stuck to the door knob :)

ramla: Welcome back! I missed you :)

Suleman said...

well, magnifying glass idea is good enough, just in case if the camera's focus do not focus enough to capture the subject well enough. God !!! so many enoughs.

abu ali: Thank you :)

Natasha: Thank you Natasha :)

dukhtar az Pakistan: Thank you, it was getting a little monotonous around here :)

M: Thank you M :)

Suleman: I was reading up how different people use their wide angle lenses along with an extension tube to make themselves a macro lens. Than I thought a magnify's lens should work just as good :)

Moi: Perhaps Arsalan was feeling a little shy to show his face, it's nice to have you back :)

Baraka: Thank you :)
