Hope you don't mind a few more old ones! Shot last summer, in the wild...

And finally a wasp beetle at a buttercup...



As always, comments appreciated!

Nice front side face details on that crab spider. Very Happy
Abdomen looks huge like a moon from this perspective.
It must be on a blackberrry I guess. Wink

Laurie, I meant to comment on this one earlier but got distracted.

I really like that spider -- the crop is beautifully crisp. Tell me again what lens this was shot with?

Thanks guys!

Yep it was on a blackberry flower, good spot!

The DOF is a little thin but I like the way it separates the front of the spider from the back!

Rik, this was shot (like most of my outdoor bugs) with the digital zuiko 35mm f3.5 macro lens. I sometimes use a 25mm extension tube with this lens for shots of smaller bugs outdoors like the ant in my previous post.

It's a glorious sharp cheap little lens (<$300), but only any use if you have a 4/3 (Olympus/Panasonic) DSLR...

Due to the 'crop' factor of 4/3 this lens has an effective focal length (in terms of field of view anyway) of 70mm in 35mm film terms...

Rather than fill the forum up with individual posts I think I'll post more of last summer's bugs to this thread... Let me know if that's bad form!!

First a bee mimic hoverfly (I think this is Merodon equestris, the Narcissus fly);



Second a longhorn beetle;



And a crop of the previous image;



All shot with Olympus E1, Zuiko digital 35mm macro lens, STF-22 twinflash.

Nice. Very Happy
But it is better to go with next thread (post) for may taste (and maybe for some other reasons). Wink
