Hi all,
Went for a walk in the local national park and found some weird and wonderful bugs/flowers. All the photos were taken with just the FZ10 and no added lenses. It meant that I was sitting the lens almost on top of the subject but they were very willing!
I hope to be getting the 6T and dcr 250 shortly, cant wait!

Just a pretty flower. The first picture was cropped, we have some big bugs down here but not that big!

Treemonkey,

Nice shots!

Have to watch the focus in the 2nd and 3rd pic. The insect is a tad not so sharp. For 3rd pic, the petals are sharp, but the center is not. What is your F number used? Try using F8 to maximise DOF.

First insect is a Robberfly (I think). Never knew of such an insect until someone in another forum posted a pic of it.

Thanks for the advice tchuanye, I find it really difficult to see what is in focus on the small LCD screen. I guess as a rule of thumb I should always stick to f8 for close ups. The 40 degree heat and hundreds of flies never helps the concentration though!
I am constantly amazed by your macro shots tchuanye and I cant wait to try my hand at it when my macro kit arrives.

First f4 1/200s
Second pic f5.6 1/500s
Last f4 1/400

Great shots! I know you have some big bugs and strange beasties in Aussie-land - and, I know that the first pic was cropped, but guessing at its size relative to its environs, HOLY MACKEREL! You could put a saddle on that thing!

Looks great straight out of the camera. The first one looks rather huge. Not what I would want to find crawling on me.

I guess it was about 5cm long (~2 inches) and by the way they bite!
