    Sweet!

    Now, to make it bike related, take some photograhs of flowers at night and use your bicycle light to illuminate them from various angles. You can get some really cool shots! Here's an example.

    Very Nice! Macro is sure fun, isn't it? Can't wait for the flowers to bloom and the bugs to return here.

    I love macro photography. It's also my favorite type to mess around with. kind of a pain in the ass to walk around with a tripod every time I go hiking though.
