Some Macro Shots

I am a big fan of macro photography. I own a 60mm EF-S lens, which I used for all the shots below. In particular, I really like close-up insect photos and of course I am way too lazy and impatient to take many of those. So here come two, a fly (possibly retarded, given it sat there for minutes ignoring my lens):

and a butterfly (less patient, and accordingly heavily cropped):

Flowering plants probably come close second; they don’t need to be fancy flowers, I quite like this snapshot of common clover:

but I especially love daisies. Somehow, they look amazing in close-up…

but I guess young roses are OK too:
