Well, I'm not wild about these little buggers, but Tammy, this is fabulous. What a crisp macro, with great color. So well done.

Bojan and Mary Beth:

Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know how much you like this shot. I appreciate your support.

The one thing that made me want to work with this photo and upload into the contest was that the smile on this dragon's face was fantastic. I just thought it was kinda unique.

Wow, Tammy, this is an amazing macro!! Unbelievably close. I love the detail and the soft background colours. What lens do you use for these?

I am sorry Ann but BP does NOT notify me when I get new comments on my photos and it was just by chance that I was checking to see if I had gotten new comments on my photos and ran across your comment/question.

I use 18-55 VR lens with a 4X magnifying attachable lenses. I bought the cheap magnifying screw on lenes from e-bay for under 20.00.

They are hard to use in my opinion and takes time to get the focus right and I still feel that I have not mastered what I wanted to accomplish by using them although the photo above is decent.

Oh, that's so much better than "decent"!! It's awesome! Thanks for the info on the lens attachment - very interesting, I'll have to look into that.

Thank you all so much!! Please know if you have a winner this month and don't see a comment from me please don't take it personal. I have been so incredibly busy with three kids, college work and my photography. To be completely honest I had forgotten all about entering this photo entirely. I hardly enter my photos anymore!!!

Great photographers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.
