    Thanks everyone

    Just wanted to say thanks to all you super photographers posting on this thread. Haven't got anything to post here but really enjoy browsing all your shots - full of admiration bordering on envy and edging into awe. I have to say I have given up on moving targets - I am just to creaky to pursue them and with the shutter delay on the Canon A80 they have usually buzzed off . I am keeping my eye out for a slow caterpillar.

    regards

    Brilliant shot BE - I don't know how you manage to get them to stay still enough!
    I will cerainly look into a close up lens for the A-200 at some point (once I have paid back the loan!!)
    Before I went away on my course I spotted a little black beetle running across the Laminate floor - here's about the best the Oly C-740 managed, cropped a bit and resized...note the shallow DOF he wouldn't keep still so I had to use a fairly fast shutter and wide aperture. But I really don't think small Life is something I can get to grips with at the moment.
    Comments?

    ...and this one is popped in more for fun.
    The beetle was running towads me - captured this time on the A-200 which is a bit less suited to this particular type of photography...rubbish focus & Dof but it amused me.
    PS - for those that don't know the normal black english beetle (& I don't know the proper name) it's not big at all - about a cm or even less, so I guess I shouldn't be hard on myself, ~ in not good light and moving about quite quickly - maybe with the A-200 I should have tried the flash - it was on 200mm after all ???...

    nothing too spectacular here as this was one of my earliest of shots with my digital (3 years ago). i've learned quite a bit about my camera since then.

    shot in Normal Program mode, 1/480th sec., f/8, ISO - 200 @7.8mm

    He can have either of them - provided he swaps it for a nice dSLR!!!
    Thanks for the kind comments - they were kind - these wern't great shots - but served to help the learning curve and to explore the limits of each camera. More light, close up lens for the A-200, the C-740 gets a bit larger image.
    More soon

    Great pics guys! Macro is so fascinating. You can pick out so many details invisible to the naked eye.

    A wasp of some kind I found in my yard:

    You are so right. Macro is one of my favorite kinds of photography. Like you have said, details previously unseen are vibrantly displayed in all of its beauty. Great shot of the wasp.
