Nice shots Bernice. I particularly like 4 and 5.

Can the SP590 get that close in macro mode, or did you use
a macro lens/adapter?

Thanks corkpix. I've just purchased an Olympus MCON-40 macro conversion lens which you use with a CLA-11 adapter. All of these were taken using the lens. #5 is the full magnification. However, the camera's own macro and super macro settings are very good as well. Do you have an SP590?

Glad you like the pics.

Bernice

Thank you jj, Phil & Clint. I was well pleased with these, particularly the last one.

E e rrr, Clint — it's Spring over here. His colours were pretty good camouflage though amongst the leaf litter.

Cheers

Bernice
