A petal detail after a few days of rain. Reminded me of a butterfly wing. With the Tam90 and only a slight crop for composition.



EDIT: after posting I had a brief burst of memory. This was taken at dusk with the Metz/bounce card in one hand (manual, 1/16th I think) and the cam in the right hand firing wireless. I've got different exposures (couldn't remember why when pp'ing) but this one's basically straight from the MRW.

Great shot Mike and my kind of macro. I love pics of flowers that select shapes rather than offer a portrait view.

A little less than ideally sharp on the yellow area -- realise DOF would have been very thin, but you were at f22.

Here is an "autumnal wheel". I did not discover where the spider might be hiding.

Thanks brettania - I have to agree. I find it hard to judge focus in the A100 viewfinder, and the screen on the back, as someone else has pointed out is misleading. remote control on the A700 looks attractive! (The main reason I switched from Canon (T90 not EOS) in about 2001 was increasing difficulty in getting reliable focus as I got older)

I believe that is a Damselfly and not a Dragonfly.
