Smaller scale

Well I dusted off my E-M1 this afternoon, it's been a bit of a while (for macro).

All with the little 60 mm attached...












I hope you enjoy them

Re: Smaller scale

Those are very nice Huw, you won't be surprised to hear that the Hover + other flies do it for me

Re: Smaller scale

I am glad you included that last one Huw - I love it.
And the flies are not too shabby either!

Re: Smaller scale

Got to admire the technique if not the subject matter in the first photos, but the last one is strangely pleasing to the eye.

Re: Smaller scale

Just too good, Huw. I'm feeling left behind ... images like these make me want to rush out spend! spend! spend! The impulse will pass - it must! must! must!

Thanks for the comment Brian, you're right no surprises there

Thanks for the comments Lyn, I think the flower is a Hypericum calycinum or 'Rose Of Sharon' but I'm by no means an expert

Thanks George, I know these small creatures are not to everybody's taste
I just find it fascinating to see features that are impossible to see with the naked eye.

I try my best but would never consider myself particularly adept at it

Thanks Paul, I'd highly recommend it.
Very addictive but sadly I don't get as much time to spend at it as I would like.

Thanks Mark, much appreciated
A lower cost approach would be to invest in an EX-25 macro tube and hook up your 50-200

Re: Smaller scale

Excellent insect macros and a stunning last flower close up shot. There certainly wasn't any rust under that dust Huw.

Re: Smaller scale

A great set Huw. The 60mm and the M1 are a top class combination.

A slight slip of the name there Paul, but I wish mine were that good.
