Literally just taken this out in the garden......Bit of a grab shot really as I couldn't even be bothered to get the all the proper macro gear out just for one bug, so I just grabbed the Pen E-PM1 camera, screwed a +4 dioptre onto the end of the lens and fired away! All things considered, I was rather pleased with the result.....Hey ho Tongue

The heavy mob! Top shot Ade. If you can get shots as good as this with a small Olympus perhaps you can do without all the bulky stuff.

I just took delivery of my E-PM1 yesterday Ade,so look forward to getting out and about with it.
It certainly is a lightweight,so I doubt I will miss all that heavy Minolta gear I used to carry about !!
Picked up the detail well here.
Super shot.
Mick.
