Manage to shoot more with the Pany today, as the subjects are flies.

No jumping spiders taken today....and last week too, so dunno where they went. But lots of flies. Surprised that flies also feed on nectar. Saw those common flies, blowfiles, hoverflies all feeding on the flowers.

FZ10+Nikon 6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, F8, 1/100s, ISO50

#1: Digging in
Natural BG

#2: Side view feeding

#3: Hoverfly feeding

#4: Prop up

#5: Close up

Fantastic macro shots:cool:

1 and 2 are especially extraordinary photos. Awesome clarity. I don't know how you do it.

Very good, Tchuanye. # 1 and 5 my favs.

Must take some time to go to the "Capodimonte bush", a large park in my city (Napoli) to ake some macro alone. Last excursion I took a crab spider which had caught a bee, and willbe posting them soon

Also must visit the Canon forum for your A610 + rev lens macros

Thanks Keith, Hiroshi, Narmer and ken for your kind comments!

Glad you like them! Quite please that the FZ10 is still going stong.

Using it with my TCYLH flash bracket....really versatile and flexible......the bracket is one and only in the world.... :lol: (lets see if anyone can figure out what bracket it is)

The first one is coolest

Narmer May 9, 2006 2:45 AM

Tchuanye, in my opinion the bracket is your Left Hand

Greetings to your left bracketing hand. I need both hands to stabilze the camera....

Thanks Ron. Well, the flash was hand held with one hand....kind of primitive
