I agree with you Fons most insects make good macro subjects, however in the UK there have been very few so far this year. It has been a cool dry Spring maybe that has something to do with it.

Fons, am I seeing a marriage here with you and the E300 evolt? Did you divorce the E1? or is it love on a two way street?....PLAYER.... Well my friend, which ever way it is, you're handling yourself admirably, though everything is not sharp there's still alot of detail in the shot and as usual your color's are just pleasing to the eye, did you up saturation alittle or is it in default? Beautiful any way.....Your macro and Phil's almost the same composition and exposure. Regards

Marriage to to E-300

Thanks kerland, yes you are right.... Lately I am hooked on my E-300, I like it very much. Especially the macro part, there is so much to explore still. The E-1 is set op with the 400mm tele lens for bird shooting.....The saturation is not changed in the camera , wat I have noticed is that when I use the 50mm macro with the 1.4 teleconverter the colours are quit diffrerent than without the converter. I like it with the teleconverter the most.. Best regards...
