    Thanks, Cindy!

    I'm not sure- it's sparrow-sized, though.

    Maggie,
    I totally missed the scale. I was thinking BIG BIRD...like an emu, maybe!

    Well you succeeded with the eye contact beautifully. And you can bee seen taking the shot reflected in the eye but not distractingly.

    I missed this when first posted. Wow, well done the Raynox 250 is not easy to use with a moving subject. Not too many Canon people using the Raynox's very popular on the Panasonic forums.

    Re: Small Sensor Macro

    This thread inspired me to at least try the "1 cm" setting for macro on my Pentax W60. Not that exciting of a shot (my pocket knife) but cool how close it gets. Just really not used to jpegs.

    Re: Small Sensor Macro

    Cant say Ive used the macro much on my D-lux 3, but while walking the dog this morning, I was overtaken by this speed demon

    No way I would have done this with my dSLR, crawling flat on the tarmac, but with the Dl3, it was a piece of cake (and, yes, I tried straightening the horizon, but this version is far more dynamic).

    Poor snail crawling up hill. Hope no cars about. The vignetting works well too.

    Re: Small Sensor Macro

    Thank you, Paul! Yes, the snail got away unharmed

    Strange thing, Im getting more and more underwhelmed by the D-lux 3 for most photography, and just as Im planning to sell it, I discover this kind of special use for it.....

    P. S. That yellow flower in your image, is it some kind of hypericum? Great shot in any case (as is Wills fly).

    Per, no idea what the flower is, my daughter came home all gooey with a wild flower her boy friend had given her (who says diamonds are a girls best friend...This seems to have worked well too!) this is the photo record for her.

    all the best

    Not that great a macro shot but I'd never seen a green spider like this before. The merged image with my fingers is just to show how small it was!

    I think you have every reason to worry.

    As a photographer you're a natural target for Plod to stop and search.

    If they find the knife you could get a criminal record...............

    Thanks SimonL, I now only carry a very small knife now, and never in the evenings or in London so hopefully I will be OK.

    I went for a harsh treatment of this to try and make a stronger image from a normally soft delicate subject.

    Re: Small Sensor Macro

    From Google: The letter of the law!

    The only legal carry in the UK (knife you can have in your possession in a public place) is a folding blade knife with a cutting edge (not blade, but the sharpened bit thereof) of 3 inches or less.

    If the blade locks open it counts as a fixed blade knife (this includes Leathermans etc) and you are in trouble.

    If you use your legal knife as an offensive weapon, it's illegal not because it's a knife, but because it's deemed to be an offensive weapon.

    A fixed blade knife of ANY length (including 3 inches or less) is illegal to carry in a public place - unless you can demonstrate reasonable cause, like being a chef and having a roll of chef's knives with you on your way to and from work... but NOT to and from the pub!

    Having a larger knife would [perhaps] be ok if you were camping/bushcrafting etc but if the copper is feeling unreasonable then you are in trouble.

    Bottom line is, if Plod is feeling unreasonable then, even if you are complying with the law, you are likely to be in trouble - albeit temporarily and then exonerated.

    Such is modern UK

    I was able to put the lens right into this guy's face and get a few pix before I touched a wing and it took off. You can kind of see the hexagons of the eyeball. That is not pixelation, pic is 100% crop, no post processing.

    Dragonfly. - Ricoh GRDII






    Another little critter, mantas, friend of dragonfly. Again, no post processing, 100% crop, Ricoh GRDII.





    I spent some time this afternoon with this mantas and a D2Xs w/Zeiss 100 macro. If I can figure out how to do it I will upload some pix. Every time I see one of these critters up close I am thankful they area only 6-inches, not 6-ft, or we would be on their dinner menu.



    No post processing, 100% crop, Ricoh GRDII.







    Last one from the GRD... Just so that you can see the mouth on these things. I used the 40mm lens converter for this one, didn't realize there was dust on the back of the element, which the GDR reproduced wonderfully. Anyways, look at the mouth!!! No post processing, 100% crop.
