another extremely surprising reaction from the voters .. i wasnt expecting this to go so well ..
thankyou so much for all the wonderful comments during voting .. and being recognized .. although i'm not sure that's a good thing .. !! .. ;)

for Nicholas ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' wolf .. i use the olympus mirrorless omd em1 mk III for almost all my photos these days ..
and shooting insects .. depending on the available light .. Olympus FL900-R flash with diffuser ... :)

i shot with the canon 5D series for many years and changed to mirroless for the lighter weight and smaller size .. i have sacrificed some quality .. but i'm ok with that ..
here's a comparison between the canon 5D and the olympus omd em1 mk3 .. with the macro lenses on ..

Who the heck gave you that 3? I think they’re just jealous of your abilities. Amazing image as always, Roz. Love the little chewed piece on the grass blade and the sublime droplets.

Congrats on the blue! Amazing. Yes the weight and size difference for mirrorless is impressive. I love how little mine weighs compared to my old DLSR! Have my eye on the RF 100mm 2.8 macro, now that I live in the country. Lots of little critters out there in the spring/summer; not all nice...wasps/mosquitos :)

I thought this could be yours but wasn't sure due to the subject, haven't seen you photograph a caterpillar before. I'm sure you have but can't remember.
Anyway it was always going to win, congrats!

Just fabulous, Roz! Congrats on the blue. It was a 10 from me, just coz it couldn't be any more.

Ha ha! Roz was “awarded” a 3 and a 5!!!
Maybe some people are allergic to insects……

This chomping insect is yet another wonder that surpasses the realm of human imagination. Spot on depth of field on the head and stalk of grass. What I really enjoy is the very thickness of the grass. This is a perspective that allows one access to the insect's world, admits one to transformation. Thank you for it.

Oh this has to be a Roz special! Wonderful depth and the little dew drops - just beautiful!! I see a definite ribbon in your future - likely blue.
