Still can't find hummingbirds. The swallowtails, though, are hard to miss. This time, with the RX10.

Beautiful. How is the RX10 for closeup and semi-macro? Have you used it for anything smaller than swallowtails?

Thank you for the comments. The RX10IV is surprisingly good for semi macros and closeups - it's a big factor in me trying to get really familiar with the camera, since it does a lot of things well. Now that I've been using my macro lens with a full frame camera, I find the ability to have better DOF control invaluable, but the RX10IV is capable of near macro type images (with the lens at 600mm). This has a different perspective, of course, than the 90mm macro on a full frame or APS-C camera. It's great, really. I can't say enough good things about this camera.

Beautiful pictures Winston.
#5 and 6 for me, with the note that #6 would be the real winner if the right side would have been less tight.
TFS and showing us the capabilities of this camera.
