I am a passionate, self-learned photographer, aspiring to become a professional some day. Although I love to click all kinds of pictures, Wildlife is my favorite genre. There's something about wildlife that captures my interest the most! My only regret is that I can't afford better lenses yet. -- Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF-S 18-55 mm IS II, Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8, Canon EF 70-300 mm USM III

      I seem to have missed your comment somehow, sorry.

      No, Travis, we are not allowed to bring back with us anything from the forest; especially skulls, bones, and anything else that belongs to a dead / living animal. May be dung is fine ;)

      This is how close I could get hand held (single shot) using reverse lens macro on my Canon 60D.

      I'm here! What's your next wish? Ropalidia Marginata - Indian Wasp<br />
<br />
I couldn't help but upload this super macro of the Wasp because this is the only pic I had which displayed both the eyes and the distinctive black projections (total of three in the form of an equilateral triangle) on its head clearly.

      Have you heard of "sting operation"? Ropalidia Marginata - Indian Wasp - an Old World species of Paper Wasp.<br />
<br />
If I got any closer than this to them, things might get a bit too painful. Bangalore,Geotagged,India,Indian wasp,Ropalidia marginata,Summer,bite,comb,fly,insect,paper wasp,sting

      Up close! AEDES AEGYPTI<br />

It is easy to identify the female from the male of this species of mosquitoes. The one in this image is a female, as it has thorny antennae as opposed to feathery antennae of its male counterpart.<br />

It is the female of this species that is after your tasty blood, similar to the other species of Mosquitoes. Aedes aegypti,Bangalore,Dengue,Geotagged,India,bite,blood sucker,insect,mosquito

      That is an incredible Macro!

      I wish I could afford a macro rail package to do the focus stacking. At least we get to see gorgeous close ups of various insects by the photographers who own it :)

      Very sharp and fantastic pic you've shot! Got to love the super cheap Macro rings for making it possible :D

      I absolutely love the images shot on a couple of Pentax lenses. Pentax Super Takumar lenses are some of the finest lenses I have seen so far.
