Default Getting closer to critters with the 35mm

.............thanks for asking Zig

The 35mm is becoming a fun lens for shooting bugs and stuff when opportunity happens.

Though not of the super magnified models these are some of what I now look for.

The challenge to get closer is refreshing, anything else being thought of when the opportunity shows is forgotten but for the photo, kinda like imagining a bull elephant or rhino standing its ground (lol ).

All these with th P3 & ZD 35mm MACRO from mode-manual


The ladybug is from the P3 + EX-25 + ZD 70-300 @ 96mm

Hi Bob,
Thanks for posting. Great series. Although, I'm not sure how close I would have gotten to the bee.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

Nice shots, I am having a harder and harder time resisting the urge to get this lens

I love these bug images. I remember as a child I had an uncle who would catch and then mount bugs, I would marvel at them in their glass cases, using a magnifying glass to see the fine detail, the bugs preserved and motionless. Now I think I much prefer having the ability to do the same with a camera as you can stare and view the fine detail at high levels of magnification without harming the bug.

in my pocket: e-pm2 lumix 12-32
