Many thanks for the ticks and comments on He looks tasty!!! - Enjoyed the short Holiday with my Australian friends - to much yacking and drinking wine and eating cheese - walked my legs off and drove some distances - just what I like - come back absolutely cream crackered and need some quite time to recuperate. I just took the Panasonic for some snaps and tried out the macro - hope you enjoy - comments and mods always welcome

A fine set of macros Ray, the detail and colours are excellent in all. I like the painterly feel to these, I suppose these were taken with the zoom on full as I tend to get that effect on my shots too particularly when I use the long range zoom on my compact when snapping butterflies and dragonflies
