Default Inside the hibiscus (FZ150+LC55)

This beautiful flower has inspired me too, I certainly do not have a race with my good friend Raghu and his wonderful images!

Fantastic and brilliant, Alex! I am not able to get this DoF with Raynox. Great colors and perfect execution, look forward to seeing more such macros.

Thanks my friend for your appreciations! This is a period of heavy rains, when the weather improves I'll try to settle.

Beautiful shot Alex.
I recently bought a LC55 and LA5, so when our hibiscus finally decides to start flowering again I will have to see if I can get a similar shot.
I haven't been able to try out the LC55 yet, as it is still too cold for insects or flowers, although I have seen some snowdrops appearing in the garden, so I guess spring is on the way
Next on the wish list is the LT55.

Many thanks John,
you'll see that LC55 and LT55 will give you a lot of satisfaction, along with your FZ150 is a truly great and you need to experiment with different configurations, until find the one that meets more!

The best I could get with my flowers, no match to the clarity, close up and depth of field you got, is this.

The previous photo was shot indoors. This was in overcast day light:
