    This was in a pot of small growing roses outside my local fruit and veg shop. Was just passing and spotted it.

      I need to get a better camera! Would love to take shots like this. What do you use? This is just beautiful!

      Thanks - this was taken with my old digital camera. It's an Olympus C5000z and the supermacro setting lets you get 4cm away from the subject, though this shot is cropped a little. You can find more information about the camera by clicking the link in the photo details on the right.

      My current camera is an Olympus SP510uz which lets me get 3cm away from the subject. Doesn't sound much but it does make a difference.

      Hi, I made a slide show for a school project, but I forgot to ask you if I can use this photo... Sorry :(
      Can I still use it though? Here's the link to the video just in case you need it. It's slide 6. Amazing photo! Thanks :)!
