Terrific macro shots well captured, I see you can even get

that raynox 250 macro lense to clip onto a Nikon D80 lens, I wonder if anyone has tried it?

Hi TC

As always just amazing shots - have to say this set looks to be the best macro's you've done to date. Everyone of them a cracker!

Great as -or even more than- usual, Tan C.

Impressive details, colors, composition, subjectsand poses.
Must book a trip to Singapore someday.

Too bad that Panasonic uses those silly pics to advertise their cams on browsers and websites.

And too bad we cannot avail of something like F/22 on our toys... to see a little more in focus. Yet even so they re splendid, espec. the AMS with green posit. eyes, the curculionid-weevil withopen wings and the incredible JS:if only it had one aye differently oriented so as to be yellow or any other color... (BTW how big was that Heavy JS?).
Sincere congrats for any of these magnificient captures.

PS - Musket you have to check the thread size of lenses.
Many Nikkor zooms are more than 67mm and anyway the problem is vignetting (DCR250 is very small, and it vignettes from mid zoom back on my FZ20, although it seems it vignettes less on FZ30 and 50 optics).

Stunning and superb macros tchuanye, #13, the emrald beauty looks like it's built for supersonic speed.
That you can pinpoint the teensy DOF of the 250 handheld is truly amazing.
Thanks! it takes some practice to get it right!

I tried on my friends D80 with the 70-200VR (I think) and there were lots of vignetting. Furthermore, I could not clip it on as the 7200 thread were too large for the 67mm spring clip of the DCR250

Sure, come to Singapore, and I will meet up with you for a shoot! :-)

This heavy jumper is smaller than the larger heavy jumpers I usually see. I would say it was about 7-8mm in size? Anyway, for different colour eyes, it seems (to me at least from the number of JS shots I have taken) that only a few JS shows this. Either some always scan with both eyes more often than some other JS, I am not too sure!

Thanks for your comments!
