365 - Day 1 ~ Marco Photography & an Ant?

Ok, so I am nuts but I want to do this ... partly because I want to shoot more.  More practise, more fun, more creative, just more.  Also want to do try to start thinking a bit more out side of the box, which I find very hard but going to try.

So Day 1, I have been working on marco photography for the last little while and having fun with it.  This couple of images are taken with 50mm lens and a 20mm extension tube.  No tripod ... yes I know suppose to use a tripod ... but well, I understand why but well ... I just don't like tripods ... there is no freedom to move about like you please ... I have used my tripod for different things; i.e.: night photography.
