    Very nice, like the first grasshopper and the dragonfly. I have been curious about the 60mm since it came out. I use the PL 45, which takes a bit of work to get good results.

    Would be interested to see how much closer you can get in with the M-Zuiko.

    What is the flash?

    The only one where I used a flash was the cicada. They were mostly taken in the bright part of the day.

    Also really like the dragonfly, grasshopper, and mushroom. I've been wondering how the 600mm works. Were these shots done with a tripod? Any other thoughts on the lens?

    All hand held, no tripod. the more I use it the better my results.
    I`ve never shot close ups before, but realizing what might make a good photo
    and spending a bit of extra time has really helped me a lot.
    I think it`s a great little/ lightweight lens for the results it pumps out.
    not hard to use at all with a bit of trial and error.
