Wow! Those are excellent!

How do you get so close to these critters? Seems like they'd hop or flyaway ifyou got too close.

Hello Tan, long time no speak

Superb shots as always, you surely must have the steadiest hands in the macro world to get sharpness like this without a tripod

Hello Tan.

Yes it's been a while, but I have always browsed your beautiful (to say the least) posts. This one is no exception, with so many marvels. Great the hoverfly, the "drone", the BF, JS and CrabSp, but the most unusual is the pose of the Ant mim sp. (#22) which seems to be rampant as Ferrari's Horse. Those legs nearly seem to come out of the screen. Therefore this is my absolute fav of the series, although I like JS and CrS as insects themselves... JSare so cutie. Pity that this summer I have had too few time for serious macro.

Thanks for sharing this further achievement



Also Sven/Seemolf mentioned this problem with the cookies (?)... I haven't had any, although it has happened to me to be unable to enter this Forum earlier this year, but not in recent months.

Your macros are definitely some of the finest seen anywhere. nzmacro (Danny) was the other who used to post here.

I especially like the first one with the damaged wing. All of them are great.

That number two bug and the colorful crab spider are my favorites. I must say you have a great selection of little critters in your area. We have little striped jumping spiders around the house, but I have only seen one colorful larger one in my life, and I look often.

Hola TC

Really superb macro's. The colours and detail are just knock out and just goes to show how good the FZ10 still is. No 23 looks as if its straight out of sci-fi movie!



:? :O


Hola viZ, Beth and Steve !!
