    Hi Jim, hi all, last week I shoot some butterfly. As usual with E3 70-300 & FL50. Close as I can go and little cropped. Sharpened in NIK sharpener.

    Lovely flower, I much more prefer the color version.

    I like the blade but remind me never to meet you in a dark ally.

    Beautiful butterflies, exceptional output from the 70-300.

    Close up is close up, of course the qualify. Plus I don't think many people know water foul have teeth. Very nice.

    Thanks for sharing everyone

    A damsel bug @ 2-1

    E 3. 35mm, EC 20, FRF





    I think thats the great thing about higher and higher magnifications. Most of the minuscule things I've been shooting this year, I would have never attempted as they are so small that even with a crop you can't see much detail.

    Next week the OM 20 comes off the bellows and visits the yard hand held on a tube stack. I should be running a round 5-1 macro, so we shall see what the ultimate OM macro can do when set free.

    Thanks for looking

    I was watching the patterns being made by the rain this afternoon on the window, when I spotted this insect. Shot through double glazing -
    I know not what it is. I can't really call the shot 'close up' but it was a try as I had just seconds to capture it.

    I know I'm trying

    The butterfly pix taken today didn't work out, so here is something completely different.

    Here's a couple from me with the 50mm f2 macro, I'm still learning about macro DOF and aperture values as I only got the lens yesterday.

    The bugs were about 10mm long 1/125 f8 ISO 320 processed in Lightroom and post cropped a bit.

    The flower or bud whatever isn't cropped but mildly processed in Lightroom.

    That is one cool looking wasp and it's better you got what you could rather than waiting to get in closer. It's a good shot as it is and much better than none.

    The screw is a interesting composition. Simple yet holds the attention. Very good close up.

    Paul

    Nice first day with the 50mm. I can tell you that in macro, DOF is slim even at high apertures. Even slimmer as you open up. So far you are doing fine.

    Thanks for sharing

    I just happen to have a small animal from this week--Black and Rufous Elephant-Shrew. Still not macro, but as close as I could get with the glass between us. (Just as well the glass was there--otherwise he/she would have certainly just run away!)



    E-410, 12-60 SWD @ 60 mm, ISO 400, 1/60 sec. @ f/6.3 (M mode), FL-50R with diffuser, -1 EV flash exposure compensation; cropped a slice off the top for composition.

    (If you're asking, "what's a rufous," I found a fun explanation here: http://10000birds.com/color-me-rufous.htm

    Rufous is the new dog.

    And your shrew is a cutie. Although I suspect it would find your fingers or lens an appealing snack.
