I’m a big fan of taking macro pictures, especially close up pictures of insects.
Here is a selection of my favorite macro pictures that I took in 2007.
Hope there will be lots of insects and other creatures to photograph in 2008 😉
Check out my archive of macro photos.

Those are amazing, as usual. 🙂
The hoverfly – is that some kind of bee? Do you get much honey production way up north there?
Hoverflies mimic other types of insects. Think this one tried to be a bee 🙂
Yeah, the honey here is lovely!
I love the hermit! So cute =D
Wonderful pictures as always. I just love the hermit crab.
Wonderful macro shots. It is very cool for me to see the little creatures that live in Norway. The Hermit crab really surprised me! The moth shot looks as if you mirrored one side to the other, but you didn’t. Very cool.
Hi, I like the hermit crab picture. But, I am rather partial to them. They make interesting terrarium pets.
I’ve never seen a dragonfly with that kind of body! (They look much less foreboding, here in the northeast USA–at least the ones I have seen close up…)
I love macro because it demystifies the insect… Usually I’m creeped out by bugs, but when I see them in macro I feel more comfortable.
To me, this is one of the glorious things about the internet. We may never be able to travel to see these things in person, but you have brought us face to face with them, as it were. All of the photos are terrific!
You know I have a phobia against most of these insects.
But you make them look so beautiful that I want to take them home. 🙂
Do you know what lens the hermit crab was taken on?
Thanks for all the comments 🙂
Stan: It was taken with a olympus zukio digital 35mm. It is a great lens!
Greeting from Italy
Excellent photos. I went through a macro phase this past year and Macro is one of my favorite ways to shoot.
I love the colors! Beautiful as usual! 🙂
Hello, I found you via Entrecard.
Your photos are beautiful, I’ll call again soon!
i really love the way you take pictures.
What wonderful macros. Sometimes, there is such beauty in these tiny packages, and we just cannot see it with the naked eye. Your photography is really outstanding, I love every visit here.
