Phew! After all the talk about FZ40, LZ1 and other cameras, after seeing shots like that I am hanging on to my FZ20....Who cares about DOF when you can blur the background as in the butterfly picture...Fred

Wonderful shots and skill. Me thinks maybe Narmer is the "Ansel Adams" of the digital world.

Great job on both, Narmer. To say I am envious would be an understatement.

Francesco, this is a fantastic "rainbow" lizard.

As hiroshi said: perfect sharpness and colour!

Thanks guys.

Yes Sven, we call Smaragdeidechsen"Ramarri" in italian (Lacerta viridis).

Bootneck2, it was easy to do that in the BF pic, but if it had been a Dragonfly or the like, it d been impossible to achieve DOF with Gaussian blur and selections in Photoshop.
And I also made an even more blurred version, but too unreal in the effect...

PS
tried to catch it but it flew off from my hands (it was the size of a big lizard, whereas big ones are really impressive, also more than 30cm long)

When you do MACRO shots, how do you set the camera to blur the background ?
