Default Insect Shots

Recently I realized that the macro mode on the FZ40 works even at full extended zoom. The focus distance is reduced from 6 point something to 3 point something feet. Here's some shots.

Critique appreciated.

Note that there's no attachment with the camera

Spider:1



Spider 2:



Spider 3:



Bee 1:



Crop of Bee 1:



Bee 2:



Crop of Bee 2:



Some Insect I don't know of :P

Nice man! Congrats!
Are you using a closeup lens?
Some of them would benefit from denoising imho though. Filtering the high-freq. noise a little would remove all noise from bokehs and still preserve the sharpness.
Thanks for sharing.

My favorite is bee #1. I prefer the composition, before cropping. Good job!

Nopes. Just the FZ40. And yeah I am trying with that. These were the un-tampered forms

Thanks though
