Superb shots. The leaf on the last shot looks like the sugar coated mint leaves lollies

Impressive, LTZ. Met a girl the other day, a biologist. Her job during the summer months: to visit a number of places anf count the butterflies and dragonflies. A real, well paid job. What a dream job

Clint those are from the GH2 and the Ring Flash Setup with Canon 500D Close Up Lens...
I kept wanting a good Ring Flash that would sync with the G Series so oly seemed the logical choice...but the RF11 doesn't just fit any ole lens it was made for a Oly 50mm I think but it was 67mm...so the 100-300 being 67mm I tried it and found that it would just "push on snugly" but then no way to get the 72mm 500D on it...so I took a 67mm extender I had for the Sony HX100 and used it...The RF11 Ring Flash absolutely works much better than the Metz Ring Flash the Metz won't TTL or sync very well at all:
67mm Adapter $24.99

RF11 Best price: $470

They work great together. I have noticed that my Metz ring flash sometimes needs a bit of tweaking to get the exposure just right. But it's wireless and fits on the Sony A55 without having to have a flash unit.

Yeah it worked OK for me as well Clint, but after using the Oly setup on the Panasonic it will Auto TTL and Manual works great too!...Night and Day from the Metz MS-15 finickiness...with good batteries and you set the Panny to 10 sec 3 Shot delay the flash will fire every shot which is great recovery time for a flash...that makes a big difference as well...

Beautiful.

I also just realized that is the reflection of your ring flash in the eye of the dragonfly (image 3)!!
