Excellent Chrisp Pictures. I liked the 3rd one most.

Nicely done, Clint! I wish my hand were so steady - I don't think I would have had a hope of capturing the first macro shot, let alone the third!

It's all in the FZ35's stability control - and a little sunlight to keep up the shutter speed.

Apparently the red head is the boss. He ran off the smaller one. I guess that was his sunning spot.

Excellent!

Lizards are funny little creatures aren't they?

Love 'em.

Folks must be way less scary than I am. Doesn't matter how quiet and inconspicuous I try to be, critters are always spooked. I swear somebody's going to get stung trying to get one of those pollinating bee macros.

I did manage to get some shots of a toad in my back yard the other day. They were snapped with my a200, so I'd have to drop them in the Sony forum.

Clint--which camera? Seems like EXIF data survives on some posted photos. Others not. Probably depends on exactly how they're posted. I'm still on the fence for a ZS5 or ZS7.

woa !!!!
Love your pics !
How can you be so stable ?
I tried some macro too at home on my plants.. it was not so nice (blur+noise).
It was in low ligth too...so maybe that's why...
Congratulations !

I'm not so sure you could call me stable

The FZ35 is just a great camera. The lizards are pretty used to seeing us on the porch so I can get pretty close if I move slowly.

Using spot focus and keeping up the shutter speeds will help prevent blur and it helps if your subject stays still
