Eye of a killer by SIM0N2 Eye of a killer by SIM0N2
Macro of a Python snake. This guy didn't move for like 30min and stared deep into my eyes. I think he was hungry...

Was the snake simply close to the glass? 40mm is pretty wide for macro. You did a great job!

yep. Sitting right at the glas and watching. 
I was lucky that I could take a picture so close with a 40mm. :D

Very cool! Did you use the 40mm macro Nikkor?

The AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40 mm 1:2,8G

I'm surprised it lets you get that close! I'm impressed. I was thinking of buying the 60mm 2.8G instead.

Do you like that little lens? Is it good for flower photography?
Reply
:iconsim0n2:
SIM0N2 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sadly I got no other macro to compare. 
This lens is my first macro =)

I love the quality of the lens and the autofocus is fine on a normal distance. On close range, you have to do it manually.
Here are 2 other photos I did with the lens: fav.me/d5d6qi2 and fav.me/d705l5h

I got no chance yet to make a photo of a flower. Sorry =/

That's pretty cool. I know it's not long enough for bug photography, but I don't like bugs anyway.

:iconsim0n2:
SIM0N2 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Me neither. =P
But the shells and forms are impressive on close range.

Anyway, the best thing is to try both and decide which focal lengh you prefer =)

To be honest, I don't "like" them either.
Be at close range, they're are really beautiful creatures. I mean, look at the eye! XD
Snakes are very fascinating, even if they eat cute little mouses or as some of them are deadly for humans... ^^
