Thanks Laurie and Sam!! :D I just checked the first flower and the petals seemed to have changed colour to purple. The second one does come from a cactus though not from the one you see at the bottom of the frame. The third one I have no idea, I tried to check the pot to see if there's any descripti...

I'm here to learn. :D
Now that I looked more carefully, the segment just behind the head is smaller than Camponotus. The colour is different too. My bad. :oops:

I call BS on that claim.

Besides, isn't a rangefinder useless for macro and other close up photography due to the parallax error?
