Default WARNING - Murder on a Calla Lily

Hi all, well while playing in the garden yesterday with my FZ200 and my macro lens, and using manual mode, I took some close ups,

Have you ever taken a photo that made you feel ill? Well the first one shown here sure made me feel ill when I put it on the computer and realized what the spider was doing. Prior to that, on the camera, i thought it was a tiny creature I hadn't seen before - well I have never seen this before and I guess many haven't. But photographically I thought it turned out well. F5 1/160 @ISO160 spot metering manual mode.

The Spider was sitting below my window so shot him too.
F2.8 1/640 ISO 160 spot metering and Manual mode.

The fly was also sitting on a white Calla Lily but hadn't met the spider as they were on different Callas. F4 1/180 @ISO 160 spot and manual.

Off to the coast today with my camera.

Congrats Eysha, you are making good progress, and I envy your lens. My Raynox 250, though very powerful, is too shallow on DoF and I would not have got as neat a picture as you got in the first photo.

The animal world, particularly insects, is a cruel one demonstrating survival of the fittest every available moment.

G'day me ol' mate Eysha

Well - you've got some pretty ferocious critters hangin' around your back yard ~ seems to me that an escape down the beach is in order

As to 'murder' - well I'm reliably told it goes on every day right under our noses and we see none of it

ps- the images look good too - plenty of good focus & sharpness with exposure being pretty spunky too ... well done

Phil

Hi Phil, of course you are right, it does go on under our noses but that was something I hadn't seen before and I found it yuck - gave me nightmares. I do like using Manual mode on the 200, I can use it quite easy on this camera but never could on the 38, different controls.

Funny you should mention the coast, I went there yesterday and took some interesting shots. Will post later.
