I just shared this on my blog, but wanted to share here too. I wish I had more time to play with my converter. Definitely want to try the water drops, as I love Jennifer's shots.
I got a cool macro lens converter back in November, but haven't spent much time playing with it. During the snow we got at the end of January, I decided to take it out to see if I could photograph snowflakes. Well, the snow we had was small and melted almost on contact, so I didn't end up with much.
This was the closest I got to capturing a unique snowflake. We haven't had great snow to capture individual flakes. The screen here is a window screen, so that gives you an idea of how small these flakes are. I hope to have another chance before we're done with snow for this winter.
I found a neat icicle though (this was pretty tiny, I love that the macro converter let me get the details of the bubbles in the ice)
I gave up on trying to get more snow, and brought the camera inside. Then I really had some fun!
This is a neat blanket that I have hanging over my sewing chair. I really love how the colors show up in this close up.

Jack's Lightning McQueen (Matchbox size) - I have a few more pictures of his car, and in taking these, I discovered that the tires all say "Lightyear". I love how Pixar shares details between their movies. (I had to sneak his car away to photograph it, he kept taking it from me as I was trying to capture it)
Andrew let me turn the camera on him (a very rare thing indeed), and I captured his eye and lashes. That was the most fun I had with my macro time. I know I shared his eye on this blog already, but it also belongs here. Besides, it's cool enough to share twice.

These are great. I love love love the eye pic. Eyes are just so beautiful when seen up close.
I hope someday my LO will stay still long enough to take a picture of her eye(s). They turned out to be a really interesting hazel and I just can't seem to capture it in photos.
Newbie question: what is a Macro Converter? Is it an attachment for a regular lens or is it something added to an already Macro lens?

I love them all! But the eye shots are so fantastic! My DD has really unusual eyes and I long to do a shot like that -- these shots are just so beautiful!!
I also really like the texture and colours of the blanket shot.
I laughed about the Lightning McQueen shot, because I have been trying to do something like that with one of my kid's trucks, and have produced nothing nearly so great. This is a really neat shot. Perfect angle and everything.
