It's been a while since I've posted any pictures, but I have these macro's that I've taken over the last while that I feel show a significant improvement over those I offered initially so here they are for your critique.

All taken with the FZ30 using either the Nikon 4t or the Raynox DCR-250.

Very nicepics

I've been looking into getting a macro and tele lens, but the more I read up on it the more undecided I get on what to purchase!

Those are all very nice pictures. I especially like the dragonfly and the last spider.

What are you using for lighting?

For the most part I am using a Sunpak 383 with an omnibounce diffuser cup thingy. Some of those are with natural lighting only I believe.

To be honest I'm still trying to get a decent handle on the lighting, I'm not real sure what works best in what situation yet. I'd like to get a cable so I can get the flash off the hotshoe so I can target the lighting a little better when it's needed, but I haven't found the proper cable I need at the local shops yet.

Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate them everyone here seems to do macros so well I hope I can eventually get to that level myself.
