Re: SX50 macro-shots...

Here are another couple of 'close-up' shots, using the zoom of the SX50, rather than any ability of mine to get ultra-close to small insects!

These flies have been supping nectar from the flowers of our avocado tree and then resting on the garden fence, which is a great place to shot them, as it doesn't move around like the tree blossom.

The first was taken at 50x zoom, the second (according to the original EXIF data) at a focal length of 17mm - whatever that translates to in optical magnification.

SX50, 50x zoom. Image cropped and resized 50%.

SX50, 17mm focal length, 100% crop.
