Well, this isn't really super-macro. but it's kinda close I guess.

I used the lenses from my field glasses and attached them to my A60.

(The tomato shot was taken without it)



This one is a drop on a tulip.



Drops on the leave of the tulip



One more.



That's a conifer.



.... and some tomatoes in the kitchen.

Comments appreciated, of course!

Plus, the shaking doesn't just come from the cam. When you're outside there's always a slight wind, making the leaves shake.

the first shot was 1/500, the second one 1/50, 3rd: 1/125 and 4th 1/100 and the last one 1/125.

And I didn't use a tripod at all. I'm lucky all shots are *sharp*

Noon is absolutely the worst time for outdoor shooting. With the sun directly overhead, shadows are minimal and everything looks flat.

For extreme closups, a tripod is mandatory. It's tricky to setup sometimes but there is no way to get extreme closeups without it. To get good depth of field requires a small aperture setting. This results in shutter speeds too slow for hand held.
