Another of my old buttons. While I've long wanted one, this challenge gave me the excuse to pick up a good used MR-14EX macro ring light flash on the FM forum. Nice, even lighting, as shown here.

The button is 7/8 inch wide by 7/8 inch tall. Here's a closer view.

Outstanding shots, Walter. The detail in both shots is great and the lighting is perfect. I have considered getting a ring light but I'm not sure how much I would use it.

Nice detail. Some day I'll be able to get clear shots like this.

Taken with a Canon 20D and a Canon EF 100 2.8 Macro lens on a tripod. Flash unit a Canon MR-14EX.

Both shots had identical EXIF information: f/5, ISO 200, 1/60th sec.
