Default Flowers and Bugs!

But no spiders. I've recently been inspired to try after a long time off, close-ups with my little Panasonic LZ8. These shots aren't any where near as impressive as many I've seen on these boards, but I'm pleased to say when I blew them up to 100% they weren't fuzzy!





I'm learning so critique away.

Cool, mudpuppy! I like your first shot where the bee is flying into the flower. Or it could be a leaf cutter bee, the way it's arching its back.

Thanks everyone. I'm surprised to even be able to take anything at all because me lens froze in the out position a couple weeks ago. Happened twice and I managed to get it working after a bit of tinkering. I've been very pleased with this camera and it's not in my budget to replace right now. I hope it holds out till at least next year. Till then, I'll just keep shooting. I even found my tripod. Ought to make taking macros a bit easier.
