Nice macro shots. I am really impressed with your close-up photos using basic equipments and a lot of patience.

superb images, will check your site on regular basis.
Guest 26-Aug-2010 09:06
I read your page about macro and insects. Something I find very exciting, like you said.. it's like hunting big game. I only have a point and shoot camera, so I get very frustrated. But with patience, sometimes I get some pretty decent shots. One day I hope to get some shots like you have in your galleries. (some day I'll get a decent camera as well) Thanks for taking the time to write out your tips, it really taught me a lot!

Mr. Plonsky. These are amazing works with tons of patience in recording these insects. Thank You.

Kudos!!! wonderful photos!!
Karen 01-Mar-2008 02:54
Hi Mark,

You are definitely an inspiration to me because you didn't start with all the high-priced equipment and you have created a magnificent portfolio. The crisp pictures made me appreciate how wonderfully decorated many insects are. I had to wonder, when they look at each other, do they classify one another as attractive or handsome?
Kindest regards, Karen

I'll return for give you some more comments from time to time.

Cheers Barry

Amazing close ups.The detail and colours are incredible. I've been trying my hand at insect photography. Nowhere near as successfully. But I will keep persevering.
Guest 08-Dec-2007 21:50
Great close-ups Mark. I'm a true novice, but this is something to aspire to for sure.
Guest 06-Nov-2007 23:05
Brilliant work! I am a teacher and these pictures are a fantastic resource. Names of the creature type would be helpful next to the pictures - thanks, Helen
Fred Hogaboom 19-Oct-2007 18:43
Great photos Mark. Sharp and great exposure. One question, From experience I can see you were quite close to the "models". Other than patience and being in the right place at the right time what tips can you pass along in regard to "capturing" similar images.
Cleveland A. Paige Jr. (mw.pmi) 03-Aug-2007 12:40
Simply the best Macro Photography that I've seen in a long time. Truly inspirational, and beautifully crisp, clear, High Quality. A real Master Photographer, Prof. Plonsky.
Thank you also for the User Rights. I sent an email, and am working on more. Stay Tuned. :)

Hello Mark,
I was surfing the web tonight looking for cameras...and one click led to the next and I ended up on your site. You are a the Michaelangelo of photography! I had no idea what a "macro" was (or did) until now. I loved each and every one of your photos...I even have a new appreciation for insects having seen all the details. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world. I can only aspire to be as good! Can you recommend a decent digital camera for a beginner like myself? I'm wanting to photograph my jewelry and get is on-line. Regards, Julianna (Houston, TX)

Ginger sent me the link to your site. Remarkable pictures..... Makes me wanna get off my butt and get a hobby. Give my regards to Leslie and the Fam.

Guest 02-Oct-2004 19:11 has been said that imitation is the highest form of flattery; I would hope to someday be able to "imitate" the incredible macro work you have done. You are truly an inspiration to my buddy and I. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and work. Jack
Vicky 31-Jan-2004 21:36
Mark -

My husband pointed me to your site this morning and I had a lot of fun looking at every single one of your posted images. Awesome work. I am an amateur photographer doing nature and some animals. I have a set of macro lenses that I have yet to use, but I look forward to actually getting out there and having some fun with them. I hope to see more of your work in the future, and will have one of your pictures on my wall soon!

Thanks for a relaxing Saturday!

Hello, Mark-

My name is Nola Blanton, and I am a graphic designer in Denton, Texas. I am currently in the process of designing an environmental studies brochure for the University of North Texas, and would like to include your dragonfly image "12 Spotted Skimmer".

Please let me know if it'd be okay for me to use your image; I won't use it without your permission.

Thank you-

Thanx for the kind words. I am a relative amateur, but as I continue to collect good shots, I am beginning to consider selling prints.
Stathis 03-Oct-2001 09:36
I found your page from DP Review.
Really very good job with the macros.
Are you doing it proffesionally somehow?
