Sweet set,
No 2 is just spot on, enough dof to show plenty of detail and just starting to fall off where youd want it to.
No 3 is tasty too, seems to be plenty of red soldier beetles about.
I know what i like, If not always why.

These have a beautiful, subtle quality to them - I think it's the slightly muted colours combined with the perfect focus points. I assume these are with the 'Z' and not a K1 with adaptor

Spot on John, that's what I love about it, both in macro which is a new genre for me and obviously landscapes / portraiture / art nudes etc

All beautifully shot, great set again Chris. Perhaps not the impact of the Marbled White in your other set, but fantastic nonetheless.

Thanks Redbusa99

The gardens around by the café have always been good for insects ( where the wildlife ponds are ) and if you take the footpath to the first hide from there, the garden area in front of the hide again has always been good for flora and insects.

Lovely, I particularly like the middle three, perhaps #4 as my favorite for its more abstract/surreal nature (I'd call it the flower-parachute).

Yes, very nice... 2 and 3 in particular for me... especially love the geometry of 2...
