Hopper is sad, as nobody answers his thread.
So he slowly fades away, maybe he will not stay.

No flash looks best here, IMO. Flash works better when there are translucent parts like wings. Flash can also bring out more color which is not always a good thing. How big is this fella? Did you use a close-up lens?

I thought you were going to say:

So he slowly turns his head and ..........ATTACKS!

Hi fmoore,

FZ5, Olympus MCON40 (+2,5 diopt.), full zoom.
I allways prefer available light, as long as it´s possible.
But the third picture is much more "galactic".
Hopper has turned, as you can see. But he will not attack until he is grown up.

Hi tazzie,

thank you for the answer, I felt so alone.
This is the former aquatic home of a dragonfly.
He just left this part to attack the rest of the insects which he did not find inside his pond.

Tazzie!
This is for you..
Off earth I guess, though it lives in my garden.
They all look a little bit strange if you get too close.
FZ5, MCon40, B-Macro, flash

.. and one for fmoore.
no flash, no closeup lens(!), just plain FZ5.
This one is from today, it did not move even when I touched the antenna with my lens.
But it is alive!

Greetings Sven
