    I like that little fella! Ya got yourself a nice picture there. I must say though that if him not being centered reduced the impression a tiny bit for me. Never the less though, a very nice picture.

    I adore your photography skills. From my experience, It’s often difficult to take photos of small objects especially if you want the fine details to show up. May I know which company set of macro lenses are you using?

    • James Lee says:

      This isn’t a macro lens shot – it’s one of Nikon’s cheapest lenses, in fact, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. It retails for $399, but if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t pay more than $100 for that glass. I’d rather save my cash for a better lens.

    Great photo and great subject for a photo – doesn’t move too fast, great graphic stripes, can be set down on a plain surface – perfect.
