    Is that an OM lens or a 4/3? Incredible picture by the way. Glad it wasn't a wasp.

    I recommend everyone who's interested in macro photography to check Mark's blogs from his signature...there are some really great shots and ideas...sometimes I wish there would be more insects than just ants and maybeetles in my city...well just sometimes :smile:

    Cheers John. You could always try an achromat on the 45 - 200.

    It's 4/3. Wasps are just a bit edgy with people, but no less photogenic. Thanks, BTW. (:)

    Oly's FL36, in the hot shoe snooted and diffused as I do on the FZ50. See here for the idea, down the page a bit : Macro Illustrated « Nature's Place

    Have still to get the lighting as I want it.

    Thanks John. I'm sure there are far more bugs in your city than you know. You can't smell the flowers from a bicycle ... (:)

    I guess you're right. But it's more likely I would get a cattle tick bite than a nice shot of some interesting insect...but I'll surely keep trying :smile:
