Inside the hibiscus (FZ150+LC55)
 
This beautiful flower has inspired me too, I certainly do not have a race with my good friend Raghu and his wonderful images!

Fantastic and brilliant, Alex! I am not able to get this DoF with Raynox. Great colors and perfect execution, look forward to seeing more such macros.

Thanks my friend for your appreciations! This is a period of heavy rains, when the weather improves I'll try to settle.

Beautiful shot Alex.
I recently bought a LC55 and LA5, so when our hibiscus finally decides to start flowering again I will have to see if I can get a similar shot.
I haven't been able to try out the LC55 yet, as it is still too cold for insects or flowers, although I have seen some snowdrops appearing in the garden, so I guess spring is on the way:)
Next on the wish list is the LT55.

Many thanks John,
you'll see that LC55 and LT55 will give you a lot of satisfaction, along with your FZ150 is a truly great and you need to experiment with different configurations, until find the one that meets more! :)

The best I could get with my flowers, no match to the clarity, close up and depth of field you got, is this.
