    Very nice shots. Particularly some with the insects.

    A number of them could do with some sharpening

    Good eye! I am learning Lightroom and only did some color balancing because of the cloudy day. I will revisit them with sharpening. I am going out tomorrow and hope to catch the bees in the sun.

    The main issue I believe is the shallow depth of field with a moving target - if only they would stand still and smile!

    At least these guys stand still (sort of, the wind was blowing today and the branches were often waving) I need to figure out what plant this was - the berries have these interesting spikes and there is a tiny drop of liquid at the ends They are about 1/3" in diameter.

    Sorry, I left out some information when I started the thread, my shots were all raw files, post processed in Bibble Pro 5 but with minimal adjustments being made.

    BTW the beetle is actually a Bloody-nosed Beetle, a name which I find amuses children at least.

    I am always amazed at how alien our own world can appear to us when we stop to look at it, especially at the micro level.

    I've got my eye on one of these with a PK-13 tube (so it'll goto 1:1) - how easy/hard to people find it to focus on a non-viewfinder body (since getting a E-PM1 I've relegated my E-P1 to macro duty) ?

    Liquid steel ~~~~~~~

    I want to call this one "Liquid Steel". My wife is getting some crazy interesting macros with this G5 + Nikon 105 lens combo. This one was taken during a light rain with water running down a "roof chain".
