G'day mate

As a collection - I am most impressed
A great set of images showing your true calibre as a photographer - and with the naming of the plants & insects as well. 10/10 all round

Has Lumix mirrorless & superzoom cameras and loves their amazing capabilities

Hans - Thanks! That was definitely some unusual light on those clouds. Was very glad to be in the right place at the right time - this only lasted about 2 or 3 minutes!

Tony - Thanks so much! I have several macro lenses. Sharpest seems to be the FA 50 f2.8 macro great for wildflower, fungi and such, but not a good length for insects. FA 100 macro is almost as sharp, and better length for the "bugs." With the shiest insects, I have an old Tamron Adaptall 90mm macro with the Adaptall 2X TC, to make a 180 macro. This one has the most trouble with flare, but gives added reach when needed. Now, if I could just find one of the Pentax 200mm macros on "special sale" for a dollar or two...

Phil - Thanks so much for your very kind words. I am blessed to live with such beauty and variety, and to have the time and equipment to photograph some...
