Magnificient, unbeatable.

Only FZ20 or macro lens too (as I think , for 2 of them are more than 2,5x zoom) ?

Thanks everyone for looking and the kind comments. For Narmer and Treemonkey: FZ20 plus Raynox DCR250 macro lens which is great for flowers. (I've ordereda 6Tto use for insect shots (inspired by Willow and Treemonkey)). I usually use either A mode at f5.6 or sometimes macro mode (when I forget to switch back to A after using macro without the DCR250 lens on, LOL). I don't normally use a flash at all (mainly since I don't have an ext one) and haven't used a tripod yet either for these - all handheld.

Very impressive... especially with the Raynox macro lens. You misht want to try using an external flash - (especially a digital slave, you can hold it with your other hand or mount it on its own tripod...) and a high shutter speed. Advantages:

1. Provides a nice fill, lights "interior" area of plant
2. Shoot at 1/2000 - tack sharp, no motion blur
3. Keeps the wind from blowing the subject outside the 2 mm dof range of the dcr 250 ; )

Great shots. Love the composition.
