Default FZ40 Close-up

I'm definitely not a close-up photographer. But we have to try a little of everything.

I've tried with flowers and since the wind does not blow, it's easy to take a photo.
Flies, bees and dragonflies are very good subjects for close-ups ... but these little creatures move too quickly for me ... so, I start with something slower.

This slug was huge ... thin and long, but as I had to move the Leaf where it is, it winced and became short and fat and with that texture

That slug looks pretty impressive to me Rui. I sometimes think macro with insects is a bit of pot luck and good timing. Keep trying.

This is a really odd looking creature! Never seen a black slug before. Nice, sharp image!

Hi Rui,

very good shots of Arion ater.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_slug

It would be nice, if you could also make some shots of the complete anaimal, especially with the head and the breathing hole.

Cheers,

Stefan

Thanks for all comments

Stefan, you are the one Thats exactly that "little" thing. I can't take anymore photos because i got those on my vacations in Spain (you can update the wiki page... the "Distribution" does not say Spain )

When a touch the leaf to move it to get a clear shot... it winced and i didnt have the time to wait it to stretch again
