Since someone at my local forum recently asked abt the A610+raynox 250 combi, thought that I should try it out.

Whats my take? Well, for the A610+Raynox 250 combi its quite ok if the object is quite large, but for smaller subjects, I still like the FZ10+Raynox250 combi.

A610+Raynox 250, F8, 1/160s, ISO50, 1 diffused slave flash
FZ10+Raynox 250, F8, 1/60s - 1/160s, ISO50, 2 diffused flash.

These shots are more for illustrating the A610+Raynox 250 combi. Did not have much large insects to shoot today.....and many OOF shots too!

#1: A610 larger bug side view

#2: A610, angle view

#3: Paper wasp

FZ10+Raynox 250 combi

#4: Fly eyes

#5: Preparing to jump....

#6: Got me an aphid....

#7: Better take cover among the leaves.....or the ants will come after me....

the color of the bug in 1&2 are great, but (imho) the eyes of the paper wasp beat everything - Ronny

They look darned good to me. I don't know how you get that close to them without scaring them away.

The eyes of #3 are stunning!
I have seen such a pattern at dragon flies, but these are wasps smaller!
We had our first ice up here, this ends the macro season for this year.

I will have to look at your excellent work for some time, Tan.
So please go on!

I think you could take great macro shots with a box with a hole in it plus the Raynox 250 lens. Beautiful shots.........Don

As usual, you're macros are outstanding!!! Great work tchuanye. Do these little critters sit still very long for you or do you have to move in quick and surprise them?........cheers.....Don
