I haven't posted in a few month, I just want to share some of my recent shots.
All of these images were shot with the FZ30 and Raynox DCR-250 attached.
For lighting I used a single external bounce flash (Sunpak 383 with reflector). All shots were hand held but I was either sitting or laying on the ground.

Excellent work as always, Bob.
Glad to see you posting again!

We use nearly identical equipment, yet I rarely get macros even close to this clear using the DCR-250. I'm just too shakey I think.

Hi Bob Frank,They are very sharp and clear image.I think you must have waited to long to get these shots.Image 1 & image 2 give me the impression of "breeding season"(I find it funny,no offence intended)

Nice shots. the dandelion one is good as the flower helps me realize the size of the fly.

Excellent macrowork Bob, I like the clarity/sharpness of the pictures but what I like most is the use of flash. In most macro shots the flash is overpowering, not in this case. I'll appreciate it if you post a picture of your flash bounce/reflector set-up.

Thanks,

Emmanuel

RedStickMan, thanks for your comments.
The DCR-250 can be difficult, it can require a lot of patience and persistence.
