    Great find Sir Les.

    I've seen the Insect vs Sci Fi discussion several times, and it's so true. If it weren't for the tiny invertebrate world, Sci Fi would be a lot less detailed and elaborate, I believe.

    Yet another praying mantis (a different one - very mobile and intent on catching some prey).

    Les that old TZ1 is still able to deliver some stunning shots well done. I've still got mine too - must use it more often.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    If you're scared of spiders, look away now.

    Saw this huntsman having a rest outside my back door. He was very cooperative, not moving a muscle whilst I got very close with a Nikkor 60mm micro lens. It's a bit unnerving, having four eyes staring back at you. Length of his head+body was about 1.5cm or just over ". Looked a lot bigger through the viewfinder!

    Slowly sorting through the photos from my Saturday nature center visit. They had a butterfly festival featuring several releases over the weekend. Really increased the numbers of a few types in the area. But this was not one of the imports. I spied this long tailed skipper along one of the trails.

    I know it's a bit late, but those are beautiful shots, Ken and Gabriel.

    And thanks, D70FAN -- you're always supportive.

    WOW
    the sharpness of that shot is incredible! Each individual hair on it can be seen.
    Well done

    Falconest I thought I would get you itching for the warm weather to drift north. Our dragonfly season has just started here in Georgia. I am really liking the capabilities of the EM-1 with the 50-200. Not quite fast enough for catching them in flight, or I need a bit more practice with the combination. The first one was actually taken with the 40-150 kit lens. Still deciding if I will get one of the current Pany or Olympus x-300 zooms to hold me over until the pro ones come out. I need to look through my guide at home to identify the big red one in the last shot. They hardly ever sat for me in the heat yesterday, but today was around 68 and he stopped to sun a bit.
