Few weeks ago one friend of mine at Kampretklik group suggested me to use a magnifying glass in order to produce macro images as one of his friend does it. The reason why he suggested me to use it instead of 50 mm lens, which I cannot afford it at the moment, is because I am keen to take pictures of small objects such as insects or something like that. It is pretty obvious that I cannot produce macro images with my Kodak Easy Share C713 for the objects that its dimension is about one cm or less.
So currently I am experimenting and still practicing to shoot macro images by combining my camera with my 60 mm and 5x of magnifying glass.

Lotus corniculatus or Bird’s-foot-trefoil
The bee, the fly, and garden grape-hyacinth flower (Muscari armeniacum)
The bee and the flower that been torn by.
The fly on the grass.
A pair of ladybirds or ladybugs or 'kumbang koksi/kepik' in Indonesian.
