    Finally found the time to get out in the backyard with my FZ35 and new DCR-250. The problem was it was around 4 degrees Celsius (frosty) and the only insects could find were a little moth and a dead wasp (he was a very cooperative model).

    I'm pretty happy with the results as it was my first go with this lens and hand held focusing is very hard with a DOF of about 2mm. I had to stack the shots to get more focus (another new skill to learn). I am amazed at the amount of detail you can get with this lens.

    Once I get the hang of the focus and lighting, I can concentrate more on the composition etc...

    CC and tips appreciated.

    These flowers were tiny. About 8mm across.

    I really like these. Top work

    I wish I could shoot more macro stuff outdoors. I have all the equipment, I just leave for work when it's dark, and get home when it's dark! I have to resort to taking photos of lens caps, or my G9, or my other camera bodies! haha.

    I want to shoot some insects god damn it! And yes I could on the weekend, But I am usually in bed in a coma all Saturday, and Sundays I tend to go abroad with folks for lunch.

    I think I might leave home early Friday, and take some photo's before I get my drink on. You have inspired me! :lol:

    The Moth would win.

    Incredible shots though. Good work. :)
