Macro in the park V4




Recently I went to the park again but this time around I only brought the Panasonic FZ28 with me as well as the Raynox DCR-250 Macro Lens.

I really wanted to try the capability of this Panasonic FZ28 in macro photography paired with the Raynox lens.








The first 5 photos above are captured using the telephoto zooming function on the Leica lens of Panasonic FZ28.

The Panasonic FZ28 technology of 2008, seems to be outdated now but the truth is that 10 mega pixels CCD multi aspect ratio sensor used by Panasonic in this camera produced excellent image quality (at compact digicam level) and I would say that it is way much better if compared to the 10 mega pixels BSI CMOS sensor used in Fujifilm HS10.


Eventually, after about 1 hour in the park it seems to be another less fruitful day but on my way out, I detected some "unfriendly" smell from what I believed to be monkey's crap and I can sense many flies around that area and you can tell with their "buzzing" sound...

When I look around..... this is what I found;





Those bastards seems to be enjoying their feast of shit.....






There is an old saying goes; "where there is crap, there will be fly"... simple as that....








In order to capture all these scenes, I have to deal with the unfriendly smell accordingly....


And while I busy trying to capture more photos of those flies, I suddenly saw a spider grabbing one of the flies and captured it accordingly. It happens so fast within that split seconds....






And from there onwards, I focus my attention to the situation.... in my previous article, I did mentioned that every time I went to this very same park, I always believed that someday I will see something new and interesting and I guess this is one of those interesting stuff as it is not everyday (or even every week) I have the chance to witness this;






At first the fly did struggle a bit, trying to move but I guess the spider injected some of his venom onto the fly's body and thus slowly but surely the fly become weaker and "dead meat"







Photography is my hobby, not my profession, but I carry my camera to work and shoot nearly every day. I cannot afford high-end camera equipment, so I make do with what I can afford. Even so, I have lots of fun with my hobby and that is the most important thing.

These photos are no where near professional level but at least at my level, I am happy and proud of it. With my limited skills and equipment, I guess this is the best I could achieve.






Eventually I spent quite a long time watching this spider wondering what will he do next....









I was hoping to see the spider eating the fly but I was out of luck as slowly but surely, the spider run away... I guess heading home to where he will finally having his own feast.....





Since the Panasonic FZ28 can shoot video, I did record some movie.... don't expect anything magnificent, I am not a skilled videographer - in fact video is not really a feature that I bothered so much when choosing a camera, good to have, wont miss it if it's not there.






While that 1 particular fly now become the "food" of the spider.... the rest of his friends don't even bother about him... all they do is to continue enjoying their meal.... the monkey's poo...




I wonder why they never at least try to help the other guy... but I guess being "fly"... no such thing as friendship loyalty or family cares or anything alike...

So if you always complain about your life suck.... try imagine being a fly... you eat shit and even so the spider will still happily eat you and when you being captured, your friend and family don't even bother as they only want to enjoy their meals....









And lastly, when I arrived at home.... right on top of my door, I saw this fucker building up his "castle" somewhere near my door area.

And so before I "terminate" this fucker, I decided to snap some photos for memory;






Yeah, just one of those typical spider you will see at home.... I just call him Stanley Wong...






And right after the photo session... I let the "Ridsect" spray do the job.....
