Default Olympus 12-50 does macro

I came home and found this critter at the front door. I did a bunch of shots with a new Pentax (but with no macro lens) and then took out the EM-5 and 12-50, put it on a tripod (forgot to turn off stabilization) and captured a fairly decent picture given poor lighting, a difficult angle, and no PP.

I haven't seen a locksmith like this one before. Nice capture! Ditto!

Very nice shot and lots of detail in the wings.

The 12-50 did a nice job in this instance, I was pleased with the outcome given the curious situation.

That's disgusting!!! Not the photo, the "locksmith."

The photo is great -- really nice job with that 12-50. What's disgusting is that as I write this it's 31 degrees (F) and we still have a slight covering of snow on the ground that's been hanging around for about a week. So it's disgusting of you to remind us frozen northerners that there are still dragonflies flitting around in the warm Florida sunshine in the middle of winter.

But.... I do like the photo! (Bah Humbug on winter!)

Thanks, Bob. Sorry about the weather in Illinois.

I haven't seen this critter at the door before or after. It was a cold morning (for this area). He was there for awhile, but then a slice of sun hit that spot and he was gone.

I won't tell you that it is supposed to reach the mid-70's today, which is a little above the average of 72.

looks good, the detail and texture on the lock are very nice.

It looks like a great performing lens.
