Green Mantis
So happy to find this beautiful mantis in the garden (on the same shrub as my mantis that won the Canon) ... so very appropriate that this is my first public photo with my prize.

Hmmmm bit disappointing this one Cheryl compared to your earlier shot of the spider using the Fuji.
A very shallow dog, as to be expected, but nothing really sharp and quite a bit of noise evident in the background.
Early days though with your new toy, nice try.

Thanks for your comments George. I am finding the extension tubes and close-up filters very challenging but I love macro so I have to make it work!! A macro lens is on my wish list but that is some time away ... sigh!

A good shot Cheryl but not as sharp & crisp like the others. As George says early days with the new camera, takes time getting used to it.

I can only agree with the comments above Cheryl, the composition is good just a bit soft but once you get to grips with the new gear I am sure we will see lots of stunners.

Interesting shot, keep up the good work and you will get the hang of it
