I took a trip up Rivelin Valley to photograph Big Stopper water scenes, and stumbled across these little beauties. luckily I had the Canon FD 50mm macro lens with me. That's one of the great things about the OM-D I no longer leave focal length options behind, so have every thing from 9mm (18mm) wide angle to 150mm (300mm) and macro (four lenses) all in one small carry bag.

These were about 30mm high and I used a small amount of light from the Manfrotto LED light to fill in on the right

These look so incredibly delicate. Very nice detail on the caps.
And I envy your lightweight kit.

Fabulous shot I wouldn't be able to fault it even if I wanted toWink I have just bought a NEX-5 online and think I made a mistake and should have gone with the OM-D since a friend bought one, its difficult knowing the direction to take when changing camera - the NEX doesn't anywhere near match the NikonSad
