I knew before I bought the R1 that due to the focusing distance, I wouldn't be able to take macros.* But when I saw this small caterpillar I couldn't resist.* When I opened the pic, though, I got a bonus critter!* The caterpillar was so small in the LCD that I could barely see it, let alone it's tiny foe.* *There are so many awesome macros on the forum that my pride almost kept me from posting;* I realize the quality is sub-par due to the extreme crop.* But it made me smile, and I decided that was enough of a reason to share it.* Maybe it will make someone else grin, too!

RiaRia - what settings did you have the R1 on to take that shot?

Thanks for your interest!* *Lighting was an overcast afternoon, no flash, spot meter on caterpillar.* EXIF data:* Aperture priority @ 1/250 sec* f/4.8 ISO 400* Focal length 55.3.* * *Below*is the original* file, straight from the camera (except for reduced size and resolution for web in PS.)

Thanks for that You mentioned that you spot metered on the caterpillar; did you also use centred weighted auto-focus, or did you just let the camera pick autofocus points?

Hi, Gareth:**I'm pretty sure I used center-weighted focus, but I was also messing around with the manual focus that day so I wouldn't swear to it!

Double wowie! that is a terrific shot.

for me, it conjures up the movie "Close Encounters", the Devil's Tower and that theme . . . . da da da, ... daDA!

Thanks for sharing with us,

RiaRia,

I had a similar accident with my Sony DSC-H1. Check out the two free-loaders on the back of this guy. I never saw them until I opened the pic at home on the computer.
