Hi,

Finally got some live inscects for fotographing. In the first you can see beetle - Ostoma ferrugineum (family - Trogossitidae), which is less than 1cm, but luckily is quiet flat so there was not big problems with DOF (maybee it's wrong on head little bit)

Second is one of darkling beetle family - Tenebrionidae. it is Diaperis boleti. It is very round, so I had problems with DOF. Maybee I should back the zoom little bit and then crop, don't know, but I think this one also came out pretty well (of course you can always get better).
All comments apreciated!

Cheers!

Just started doing macros myself so I can't give any advice except to keep taking pictures.

Here is one macro from SMAC posted some months back on my request for a benchmark for 'No add-ons' macro.

Hi,

Well, yes it is without any add on lenses like nikon 6t or raynox DCR-250, but it's taken with lens which I screwed off from old russian MBS-10 microscope :-) It really fits to the FZ-20 lens, but I still haven't stacked them together so I just put them both on the desk and put object infront of them in vertical position. If I had a tripod it would be much better.
Ok I'll post some photos of this lens whenever the battery charges :-)
