wk7leung, musket, bmullen, thanks for looking and commenting,

wk7leung: Have you tried the lastcombination that you proposed? In the past others have tried to stack too many components and hadbig problems with chromatic aberrations, blurred spots in the centre and corners of the picture.

On first glance it looks good,, but its hard to tell because the surface is not flat. Thanks for the effort.

You are right. In fact, focusing is difficult with so much attachment done to the prime lensand thatdoes account for the quality of the image got. In doing this one, it really takes my eye out to nail downthe little ups and downs on the matt surface of the petal. Provided thatthe focusing ispin-point in accuracy, I thinkthe optics nowadays canassure usdecent images in most cases. Maybe, tonight, ifI have time, Ican try out setting up the whole setandpost a few images up here for viewing.

What a strange looking moth - any idea what it is?There aremany field guides to butterflies, but I have never seen one to moths.

The pictures are great -- no flies on those flies! :lol:

Goldwinger,, Thanks for looking and commenting. When I take macro shots I try to stabilize my body by leaning against a wall, kneel on the ground or rest my hand ona stick.
