Ohhh my goodness; those are so exceptional! I can't believe the detail in the "elephant's eye" image! My favorite was #1, neat that the bee's legs are shown so perfectly! The colors are so beautiful in that one.

They all are wonderful!

Very nice job, Stefan! You captured one of my favorite animals, the red (lesser) panda! Apparently I'm the only one who has trouble capturing bees in flight ??!!

Great shots Stefan

Hard to choose the best from this series, Red Panda and the bee in flight, but the Meerkat is really good as well

Thanks to all for your kind comments.

I am really happy that you like the shots.

Although I have my new Nikon D7000 I will use also the FZ40/45, because for some shots it works a little bit better for me at the moment.

Cheers,

Stefan
