I confess that insects are not the animals I like the most.

Anyway I like taking (and looking at others') macros, and the colors of many of them as well as the acrions they do are really more than a story to tell.

GreaT Macros Tchuanye, but, as in the case of bugs' eggs, it is the NARRATIVITY in your series which strikes more than the individual shots themselves (on the quality of which there is few to comment).

I don't know if you could do much better with a dSLR (quite sure, but at which costs?).

Thanks Stoney!

Narmer, Thanks for the comments! Well even if I have the $, I would reconsider if I would buy a dslr. Of course if I won it in some contest I would not mind one bit:lol:.

I came from using the SLR(Minolta 505SI), and had some experience in it. To do what the FZ10 could do would require changing the lens often, and with the sensitiveness of the dslr sensor to dust, I would not want to do that too often. But than again, I am leaving the option open. Have not even used the FZ10 for a year (Aug 04) and I plan to hold it as long as it gives me acceptable pics.

I am disappointed!
They lost their grip, I thought they were torn apart!
Keep on telling stories, I will read all of them.
