Thanks serendipidy. #2 was a real challenge. For some reason, I had a real issue trying to get the right focus. A couple of dozen images later, I was happy with this :)

Looks like a diamond, ruby and emerald jeweled pin from Tiffany. ;)

Pretty cool shots Mr Bean, though I really like the Sun Dew.  Just curious, tripod or handheld?

Thanks ERHP. Tripod these days. Gitzo GT2541 with RRS BH40 head. On the camera, I have the RRS L plate mount. The beauty of this setup is that I can reverse the column on the Gitzo, so its hanging down and the L plate gives me 2 different angles to mount the camera. I use live view to give me a rough idea where the object will be before lying on the ground to view through the view finder.....that's the neck breaking hard bit :)

I can get really low with this setup, and its rock solid. Sure, its a fiddle to setup, but, the orchids aren't going anywhere in a hurry :)

Tall Sun Dew, after the rain, with rain drop. This time, a front on view. Note the remains of insects that have previously been captured and devoured by the plant.

Wine lipped spider orchid. A bit of a rare one, but there's a nice little crop of them out in the reserve, near me.

From a camera, technical perspective, I was surprised how much detail was in the highlights. The leaf coming towards the camera, was overblown and looked like there was no detail (just a creamy blur really). In Lightroom, I turned the highlights down by 100, and suddenly, the detail popped out :)

Thanks serendipidy. The reserves I talk about are pockets of land, maybe 20-50 acres in size that run NE of Melbourne (Australia) - from Warrandyte State Park. Most are linked to State parks, and ultimately link up with the biggest park near Melbourne - the Kinglake National Park. The orchids in question may only take up an acre (or less) in each of these reserves. So, it's a bit tricky finding them at first. But, you learn the signs over time :)

Thanks. Orchids are one of my favorite flowers. :)

Looks like something similar to the marmalade hoverfly Episyrphus balteatus or maybe one of the Dasysyphus spp.

I believe this sub species of the syrphidae family is called syrphus ribesii. But it is not easy to tell them apart.

Very nice. Hoverflies move too quick for me to snap them (well, the ones down here in Australia). Nicely captured :)
