The FZ8 baby is almost a month old now!

Hope it's okay to continue posting photos here instead of the gallery. But a bit scared to post photos at the macro section cause so many awesome pics there :embrass:

Anyway I tried shooting insects this time but was a bit hard as the ants kept scurrying around (as ants usually do...) The butterfly was more cooperative! It stayed on the flower the entire time =D

reson07>> I have better luck with macro than normal shots I think ;)

paperseal>>Agree! The insects keep moving around and just when you adjust the necessary settings, they all scurry away already :bheart:

I used MF for these shots but if I'm feeling lazy or need a quick shot, I just switch on P! ;)

Not bad but seems like its not focused close enough... U can try adding a close up filter to get a better magnifying effect. I did that with my old FZ50 and it worked wonders.
