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.

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!

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. :-)

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)
