FZ20 macro (succeeding in getting at few cms with 2,5x zoom Macro mode, no add-on lens). The image was heavily cropped (was originally like the following one) and then only slightly resized.

Simply stunning. I didn't realize such magnificent macros could be attained without the use of add on lenses. You really have shown the capability of the FZ!

Thanks Habanero and Willow1.

The guy was about 7 cm long, so no need (and no time)to fix the 6T.
First I made a Tele macro (but from nearly 2m, it is not stunning at all like FZ5 tele macros), then set FZ20to Macro mode and took handheld shots (the dragonfly was brightened by direct sunlight) getting closer and closer and having burst mode on.

2-3 were fine. These shots I took saturday are my first DF shots in more than 7 months of FZ20 use.

All another story is trying to take shots of dragonfly while they are flying: not impossible, cause they often stop on the same series of places and on the same flowers, but it would need some hours of patioence, and I was not alone there on the Italian Matese mountains.

If I properly read between the lines, your comment reminds me of when I took my sweetheart on a hot air balloon ride in Sedona Arizona (highly recommended). I was so enamored with the breathtaking scenery, I ended up takingway too manyphotos during the 1 1/2 hr ride... talk about interfering with the romance! But we we can now look back onour arial pics of some of themost beautifulrock formations I've ever seen.

This is amazing, the depth of field effect really enhaces the main subjetc, sharp and focused.

Do you know the settings you used for this? ISO, f# and shutter speed?
