Came across this guy with my 18-55 kit lens and got as close as I could.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

Nice work with the kit lens. Those are tiny flies, amazing how well it came out for this crop. Since the macro bug (so to speak) has you now, won't be long you'll be getting a new lens. ;)

When it was blown up to full size on my screen it looked a tad soft, but thats to be expected with a kit lens, its a nice capture indeed. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Tone down the slight overexposed part a little and it will be great for a kit lens shot.
