Hi,

Decided to post also something in close-up forums. Saw that everyone is posting dragonfly photos, so here's one of mine.
Taken with Panasonic DMC-FZ20, with binocular MBS-10 lens and onboard flash used. Resized, Auto Levels and USM.
All comments apreciated!

Hi,

I have finished my test with the MBS-10 +11 diopt, 90mm.
The results with its lens(es) are excellent, you can see it with your shots!
I have to write down the results.
But here is a direct comparison:
olympus alife size achromat +8 diopt, 120mm - no flash.
Same dragonfly, just turned around a little bit.
Hope you are not disturbed by my picture.

Thank you for your comments!

Particle_Man: I still have to learn many things, and your macro shots are also great, so I would say that we are still in the same level :-)

Stevekin: Well, yes I was very surprised and happy that this dragonfly didn't fly away as other dragonflys do. Maybee it was because of rainy weather that was previous day and only that morning shined some sun, so maybee this dragonfly wasn't warmed up in the sun and was still not very active.

That's nice picture seemolf, it does look like the same dragonfly :-)

The detail and clarity is startling...amazing work. Love the textures on the eyes. In macro, they're truly alien-looking creatures.

I'm jealous of your macro abilities...

You should have made him shave before modeling for you.

Seriously, a fantastic shot!
