This is very clever stuff Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Nature has fine tuned mechanisms to the point of clever perfection, Chris. My apologies for the late reply.
The 100 mm lens is on my wishlist. This is so wonderful, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I found it to be a competent lens, excellent glass quality and does not weigh a brick grin
A glorious macro Ayush. Well done
Ayush Basu: Thank you Janet, and my apologies for the late reply.
You and Ray certainly have this sort of photography well sorted out, this is excellent.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the visit and the comment, Brian. I still have much to learn from Ray and other skilled practitioners of macro photography, and my apologies for the late reply.

Gobsmacked, no words, SO GOOD.
I think this is the best I ever saw... Together with Ray you are the masters of the small world.
A likey to me.
Those eyes look like sunflowers after they bloomed and the seeds show....
I am reading the Da Vinci Code and yesterday I was at the part where is explained that that pattern is called Phi...with the code 1618....

Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment Astrid, and my apologies for the late reply. I think I got lucky for this. It is definitely a learning experience since shooting this brief macro series already forced me to look up a lot of information on the internet which was quite fascinating to understand and digest. Thank you for the golden ratio link; nature has a way of fine tuning different arrangements and Man in turn tries to apply the same in his creations.
two great macros Ayush... and the top one is your best yet....petersmile
Ayush Basu: A combination of several factors, good fortune among them, Peter, and my apologies for the late reply.

Very impressive close-ups of this fly - the eyes are amazing and look almost like Big Brother at us. Yes, I feel a shiver running down my back!
Ayush Basu: I liked that the macro lens was able to give me a larger than life view of those head, Philine, thank you for the comment and apologies for the delay in replying.
Ha ha... Macro is fun, right!
Ayush Basu: If your subjects behave! grin

Excellent and a likey. Your playing around produces some fantastic pictures.
Wow... good job!
Wow, love the extraordinary detail.
Ayush Basu: Macro photography really makes one look at the world around us in a different way. All that is necessary is a good macro lens and loooots of patience.
