Hi,

Inspired by tchuanye's macro shots I decided to post some of mine, which I got over last few days.
All comments apreciated!
Cheers!

First one is Lily leaf beetle (Lilioceris lilii), and I really like this pic.

Next one is some kind of bug and I think it's sloe bug (Dolycoris baccarum).

And the last one is really pesky little thing which isn't actually an insect - a tick.

Well, yes they were doing IT some moments ago, but if you look carefully than the male is just sitting on female :G so actually they aren't doing nothing bad :lol::lol::lol:

You're way more dedicated to this than I am - if I saw that tick on me (or anyone else) I would be running for the hills instead offor my camera ;) Nice shots though, very sharp and good exposure make the colours really vibrant!

Fantastic! I can't pick a favourite - maybe #2 is a weavil?

CerambyX Jun 26, 2005 2:55 AM

Thank you Suze and nacye for your kind comments!

Suze - Usually I would also just throw away this tick, but this time father gave me directions to photograph it, so he could write some story in some local magazine. :lol:

nancye - well as far as I know it is a bug, but yes, it's face doe's have some rsemblance with a weewil. :-)

Nice shots CermbyX! I like #1 too.:cool:

Looks like the 1 on top is waiting for scraps :cool:nice pics .

You do quite well with your macro setup :|

Thank you tchuanye and pappy for your comments!

Pappy - Yes, I'm actually starting to like my macro setup, but it's quite hard to handheld this whole system which weights ~1kg, when you don't have anywhere to rest your elbows, but when I can get stable position, than this lens can get some good, sharp pictures. Probably the more I will practice with it - the more often I will get pictures like #1 in this post.

I like the first two. Great FZ20 shots. What lens did you use?

The last one is a mint, and I'd be careful in making it wander on my skin (they are bloodsucker parasites)
