Hi,

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

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:
