At the same place as in my Larvae attack shots, saw this Lynx eating this flying ant.

Excellent detail and composition Tan. It's also a scary capture, the flying ant looks like an outer space monster!!

In addition to sharpness the colors in your macros are excellent.

Awesome, especially the first one.
Although less zoomed in, it gives a great impression of the struggle, and you managed to capture an ultra-valid composition having care to keep both LS and its prey's heads on a same focal plane. Great.

PS the only fault in your images is the lack of EXIF data (I am often more interested to the focal length than to the ISO, Shutter speed and Aperture, which are generally unchanged).

Thanks for the EXIF, Tan.

So these are only at about 4x and 6x zoom respectively (this explains the good DOF).
LS are are larger than I thought.
Is the 1st one a crop ? With FZ40, also attaching the DCR250 directly on the lens (where you fix the cap) there is still some vignetting at 4 and 5x zoom...

If you want I have Neat Image 5 pro, which is both standalone and plugin (.8bf file) for photo editing programs (it's 2-3 Mb). It's much better using Neat Image, Noise Ninja and similar as plugins for you can apply easily the NR only to the wished parts of the images. I have your e-mail.
