Macro Photography: Bugs on Plants

Dragonflies on orchids and beetles on bromeliads... these are a few of my favorite things! Or at least for macro photography. It may be mid-December, but sunny and 30C is the norm here in Singapore, so, armed with my Minolta AF 100 F2.8 Macro lens, I went to the Singapore Botanic Gardens on Sunday to shoot some bugs on plants. These are my favorites from the day:

This dragonfly was a great model, sitting still long enough for me to fiddle with the settings and get multiple shots.
The ants were less cooperative. Next time I'm bringing a bottle of ether :-P

This guy was a monster. One of those only-in-the-tropics bugs that are so big you duck when they zoom past your head.

The perimeter of our Tennessee Titan Flag is double stitched and the Tennessee Titan team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, these flags are also perfect to hang on any wall in your game room, sports room, or office.nfl house divided flags
