    There isn't really one ... But on the Passion Fruit Vine I found this wasp one morning, looking for breakfast. Slowly enough to get a few pix.

    Thanks guys, always flash, diffused and snooted and diffused again. Exif is in the file. I use the Pany FZ50 and G1 with achromats.

    The WD is about two inches so I hold what the creature is on and aim for an angle to optimise dof, doesn't always work, especially when they are moving.

    Another intriguing macro from you Mark. It would be interesting to have a macro challenge in the future I reckon.

    Butt kicker? Hah, raising the bar is all, my own first. And I think I can't go any further with present gear, the old FZ50 and G1. The 50 gets more use because of the internally zooming lens and relatively decent AF - maybe Pany will eventually come out with a real successor to the FZ50.

    BTW, let me know if you start a macro challenge thread and I'll come and kick some butt. :)  Or get kicked ...


    I used to teach macro/meditation (because med enables the other) in Brisbane but you really need to put in the time and not many want to 'really' do that. I was also getting most attendees from a local forum until two mods complained my work didn't need criticism therefore I was too good for the forum, as if the forum existed only for the formulation of criticism. Really!

    Would be funny but people then stopped commenting on my stuff and I stopped posting there, except to say 'goodbye'.

    Anyway, the second link in my sig is my non tech rundown on my approach and I am always pleased to help anyone improve, but you have to 'really' want to ... :) 

    It's a passion.
