One day I was trying to take some photo of small fly, but I couldn't really get nice picture. I kept photographing him when sudenly an ant ran in to my field of view (I was looking through EVF) and caught my photographing subject. I imediately switched to the ant and was lucky to get one picture of it with this fly in his jaws. It was really interesting to see ant attacking fly. :-) Otherwise these pictures aren't even close to the perfection (I would say that they are more bad than good), but I'm posting because of this interesting accident. :-)
Both pictures are cropped, resized, USM. Taken with FZ20 and MBS-10 lens.
All comments apreciated!

1. Fly is sitting and doesn't even notice danger coming towards it

2. Ant and his victim

Thanks for showing us these photos :cool:You say you took these with a MBS-10 lens , do you use extension tubes ?

Emm, what is an extension tube? If you mean adapter, than I use stock adapter that came together with Panasonic FZ20.
You can see the way I'm using it in this topic:

Adapter tube to allow attachment of filters , but i C from your link that you made your lens .

Well done:cool:
