Having viewed many great macro shots by some of this forums members, convinced me to purchase a Raynox DCR 250. It came this weekend and so armed with my FZ20 and a spray bottle, I ventured out to the garden to test it out. Here are a few of my initial shots. The first two are of a grape hiacynth. The individual florets of the plant are about the size of a pea. The third shot is of a rock cress, whose flowers are about 3 times the size of a pea. C and c more than welcome.

Very interesting shots Narcis. The water droplets look very nice.

My next purchase will be the DCR 250, I have the Nikon 6T and a Canon 500D with combined magnification of +4.9 diopter. I get great results but for real small insects I need the Raynox.

Macnite, for your information, I ordered my DCR 250 thru bugeyedigital.com Price was 40 US$ + $5 for shipping. Arrived two weeks after I placed my order. This was half the price from any location in Canada that carries Raynox lenses.

Congratulations on your macros, Narcis!
I particularly like the way you caught the refraction in the droplets in the first shot ... though all are good.
Understand that using close-up lenses is not easy - especially the high diopter such as the 250, so you are to be commended. I have not dared try it yet ... will get around to it some day !!!
