Very good shots! How close where you to the spider? BTW: It's Pisaura mirabilis, a nursery web spider.

Thanks to all of you:

--- Hiroshi: your Italian is nearly perfect:
only 'a fotografia "é" (verb) and it is "ragno" ('granchio' iscrab).

--- Stoney99:
I was at 1-2cm, at the maximum zoom possible at that distance without a magnifier lens: 15,3mm (=92mm). Results with a 4-6T are much more impressive, but also without it the macro is really not to throw away, considering that this is a very small spider, certainly not as big as the one I shot with my A300 last year:


or the snake I recently caught and posted here:

PS
I am getting more and more in touch with my FZ20.
I am not one of those who says that this is a perfect cam and fully loves it.
There are some annoying things as a bit of noise more than Canons, the slight WBcasts and some problems with high dynamic range scenes.

S2 IS will be better in certain features (as also S1 was): batteries, swivel LCD, Canon colors/WB, movie mode, 15sec, but they are worse in others, useless to say which ones, you FZ owners know them.
Each of these super zoom has better points and worse ones compared to others.

Also we cannot expect the image quality of good compacts like G6 or even cheaper ones: we are dealing with 36-432mm here !!!

If one can accept some deficiencies, with good PP skill you can do quite a dSLR-like job with this cam.

Early next week I'll post the 2 excursions from which the animals pics above are taken: great landscapes, you'll see. And tomorrow I m going birdwatching...

Ah, narmer, what I meant to say (the carved in wood thing) was that the spider seems to have more angles than curves. a little like stealth bomber. As a photograph it sure is superb.

Thanks. I thought the word for spider might have been wrong, it didn't quite sound right to me but I couldn't remember. At least they both have long leggs:G
