Hey Mark,

You captured some awesome pics, my favorites are of the lions and rhinos.
Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

Thanks!  :biggrin:

I was using (and still use) this camera: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?fl=&id=1367

Not an SLR, but a "megazoom bridge camera" - has a 26-520mm equivalent lens, but gets horribly soft & slow as you use the zoom.
Those pics were taken using it's "super macro" mode, which returns pretty decent shots.

Stunning photos NeilV  :thumleft:

Thank you very much for the compliment.

Neil,
what lenses are you using, iso, f stop etc...
I used to be indecisive, but I'm not so sure anymore

Nie 'n baie goeie foto nie, maar wie het al een in die dag gesien?
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?
