My first attempts at Macro/Close-up!
Had a wonderful vacation in Niagara Falls two weeks ago. There were many wonderful photo opportunities, and this was my first trip using a DSLR. There is a butterfly conservatory there, which is amazing. Here are a couple shots
I was using a Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM on a d5100, handheld.
Rest of the trip photos are here http://www.flickr.com/photos/60038894@N00/sets/72157633347135778/
