    Very nice. You need to supply more information regarding camera, lens and technique used (not necessarily shutter speed and the like).

    Thanks Ray. Exif is always in the file m8, if you have any questions just ask.

    I rarely look at the EXIF and all it would show is camera and lens. Many people would be interested in the techniques that you used, the things involved to get the shots. As with any photography, to get good shots usually involves more than just pointing and shooting.

    Great stuff. My first serious camera was an FZ-30, and boy did I ever love that thing, especially for macro, combined with my raynox dcr-250. Depth of field to spare! I still think the fz-50 was the pinnacle of superzoom "bridge" camera handling. I went from my fz-30 right to an e-510 and e-330 with 4/3, so I never actually had the fz-50 for myself. Thanks for sharing these, what a walk down memory lane.

    For anyone interested there's the exif for camera details and there's my sig, second link of sig is to a 'long' page on my process, including technique and gear. I wrote it to save writing it over. The first sig link will take you to the latest post on my site, in case anyone's interested. If you have any specific questions about these pix just ask, no problem.

    Thanks Faith ... I have the 250 and the 150 on most of the time, depends on the size of the creature and if it suits to change the working distance. The FZ50 is still the best, for me, pity the FZ1000 minimum aperture is f8 or I'd try it out. I had a dslr and have a couple G1's but 95% use the '50, not great IQ but works so well - for macro, for me.
