Default Playing around with macro

I recently bought an Olympus 50mm ED lens and an EC -20 teleconverter to use with my E-510 camera. I've chased some bugs and got up close to some flowers. It's great fun but difficult outside to keep the lens in focus since it's so seldom calm here, the lens keeps trying to refocus as the wind blows. Here are a few things that sort of turned out reasonably.

spedangie,

Yes, the focusing. Great pictures. Especially like this one. Wonder what purpose(s) the "metallic" colour servs(-s)
