Beautiful work. Besides the great photography there is something of interest in the photos. I wish I had your patience and skill.

Excellent work Narmer. A powerful display on picture number one, the flower, spider and bee! Your pictures are worth studying and learning. Thanks for posting.

Thank you

Although I use photoshop since nearly 9 years now, I wouldn't get such shots without the FZ20, add on lenses and especially the experiments and councils of Tchuanye, Seemolf and others right on this forum and DPReview's.

Still my pics are surely somewhat suffering the use of onboard flash:
external flash (with synchro wire) has more powerful light, and many more possibilities to set the light in a creative position... must buy one someday!

PS Tchuanye I know you like that one for it has both spider and bee heads in focus.
However this was notachieved by shootingthem on a same plane, but pasting part of the bee's face from another pic where -at full size- the small cells of the bee's eye are in focus and sharply visible; on the original pic only the spider was well in focus.

Stevetracey

Nikon 6T + 5T for the spider's ones.
Only 6T for the old (3) butterflies.
No lens for the frog before the cascade.

Misbehave

I don't know what happened.
I was there nearly 15 mins and this means I remained alone on the way back.
The funny thing is that the group of trekkers who were ahead of me of half an hour (yes I lost other 15 mins trying to catch of photograph a snake which had crept in a hole) arrived on the place where our cars were just half an hour AFTER me, for I did a shorter way back...
We were in a beautiful places and I am posting the landscapes pics in another thread...
