One of my rare forays into macro - although maybe now I'm using the Powershot G9, I might be tempted to do a little more.

Photographed today at my local nature reserve.

The G9 like the 7 takes some pretty good images there Graham. Though this has a pink or bluish tint, maybe a combination thereof, the depth of field is pretty good and the focus right where it should be. If the G9 is anything like the G7, try setting the "My Colors," to "neutral." You should get much better color and loose that tint, plus set the white balance to automatic or AWB. Very Happy

The G7 & 9 are both excellent cameras and if you keep at it, you may find yourself doing a lot more macro than you might suppose. Very Happy

Well spotted - I'd forgotten to reset the colour balance after using the G9 on the microscope. It was set to fluorescent!

That will do it! Laughing Don't feel all alone, several of us do that from time to time. Very Happy

Nice capture!

Those feathery antennae suggest to me some sort of midge rather than a mossie, could be wrong though!

Yeah it does look like a midge. I never noticed the antennae but of course I was looking at the image itself as a whole. Good eye! Wink
