Hi all,

I think this cookies thingy here at stevesforum is kind of frustrating....not sure the rest of you are experiencing it. So consolidating some shots taken recently and posting here.

FZ10+Raynox 250 or with 6T+Sigma CU, F8, various speeds, 2 diffuse flash

Went downstairs to shoot again.

FZ10+raynox 250, F8, various speed, 2 diffuse flash.

#1: LL fly with meal


#2: Huge 1.6cm JS


#3: Front face


#4: Close up


#5: In the curl leave


#6: Little JS with fly


#7: Going up a branch


#8: Digestive fly....getting soft....


#9:Standing


#10: Salute!


This is home....
#11:


#12: Nice and curly


#13: The stare.


#14: The LB.


#15: Different patterns and all...


#16: Amazed with the LB


#17: Some have snacks


#18: Looking down


Other Spider home shots

#19:


#20


#21:


#22: Tiger Beetle



This green crested lizard was running on the ground and stop next to a lampost on the ground...so approach it using the lampost to block my approach. Had to use Sigma CU only to give me greatest working distance of ~41cm.

Those are all terrific shots, but those lizard shots are amazing! Great detail!

Great shots. My favorites are the lizard and the tiger beetle. Spiders are nice. Every time I see someone's spider shots I go out and yell at my spiders for being so plain, ugly and small. Doesn't help though; they stay that way.

Awesome

How close was the camera from those bugs and how did you have your FZ10 setup (metering, color effect, ISO, etc.)? I have an FZ20 and could never take any picture like these.

Your macro shots have always amazed me. You make it look so easy to just go out and get several amazing shots in one day.

Thanks vaiboy, steve, Tullio, DonR!

Tullio, main thing I keep constant is the F8 apeture. The rest I will adjust....shutter, if A mode defaults to 1/60s, and use the flashes to control lighting.

DonR.....these shots were taken over a period of time! Although #9 to #21 was on a single shooting session!

Interesting...considering that this is a fixed lens camera, I'd think that you'd have the aperture set to either f4.0 or f5.6 tops, which I believe is the lens "sweet spot" (at least it ison the FZ20).I will give this setting a try next time I shoot with my FZ20.Thanks for the info. Your images are indeed amazing!

Tullio - When shooting using close up lenses like the DCR250 the DOF is paper thin, so you use the smallest aperture possible to maximize the DOF.

Got it! Thanks for the info. I have the Sony macro lens so I'll give it a shot.
