Late summer in northern Germany.
The morning reveals structures, nearly invisible for the rest of the day.
FZ5, Mcon40, tripod, ISO80, NR, USM









Hope you like it....

Hey Sven, I've missed your post for the last few days. Beautiful shots again. Number4 &1 are my favorites in that order. Good to have you back posting your wonderful shots. You inspire me.

The last shot is beautiful, It looks more like a necklace than a spider's web.

thanks for the nice comments!

Don, I am still on holiday. I have to get up very early to have some time on my own ;-)

Jim, I did not find enough mud, so I had to take dew.

viaboy, I like the comparison with a necklace. We have seen some excellent shots of waterdrops here lately.

Bali, this is an easy job compared to your excellent macros!

raghu, this forum can be proud on all members. Let's hope that our exquisite macro crew can stay together. Many of us will buy different cameras (eg. dSLRs) soon. I just bought a miniature camera for my wife, which takes photos of small ants without any addition lenses. But those pictures can't be published here.

Fred, you helped all of us with your advice on addon lenses. So these pictures are some fruits of your good job!

Donna, nature is full of beauty. This forum is an excellent place to give us the necessary respect.

Sven

Dear Sven

Perhaps your best post of all here, although only 4 shots.
#2 is fine, but 1,3, and 4 are great.
In particular #1 is a shot I d like to take, but very hard to be in the places where I go Macroing so early in the morning.
This also witnesses that strong colors ar not a necessity to make great macros.

If I had made #1, I would have further blurred the green and dark spot in the (already excellent) background.
Selection far from the wings, feather selection about 15 and gaussian blur (around 9).
I have seen similar pics (dew on BF and on Damselflies) and dew-necklace on a book of a great macro photographer, John Shaw.

Oly MCON40 is really not worse than Nikons and similar diopters.
And FZ5 natural colors always strike me as your improving skill.

Congratulations
