Tonio, those pics are really cool. I especially like the blown-up cropped one, as it has no distractions in the background. Great work!

Gorgeos shots! Makes me wish that our northern california winter was a little colder so I could catch some ice and snow close ups, unfortunately the weather gods hate me and all they're bringing is rain and grey blah days ...what camera/lens combo did you use to get them btw?

Yeah, that's a tough break, Noah. You would think the weather Gods would have slacked up on rainin' on ya, after that first 40 days and 40 nights.

Thanks. Since the spring is in front of the door (at this moment in Hungary only by the calendar), I hope that we can forget the snow, ice, grey rain soon, and can find new colourful subjects, for close-ups too.
I have a Nikon Coolpix 4300 compact camera, and I used its macro zoom function. The autofocus is rather doubtful in this case (it doesn't find the right distance), so first I focused onto my palm, locked the settings, then I turned to the subject and by moving the camera I set the appropriate distance.
