    1. Thank you, Ferdy! You see, I am like a small child who has just got new shoes and is going to bed with them! :-)
      You remember, I told you I am testing a macro Olympus gear. I was very happy with the results, and last week I've got my new toys - Olympus E-M1 MkIII with 2 macro lenses 30 and 60 mm! So now I can't wait to go out in the field and take pictures, no matter what the weather!
