This is a closeup of a wasp type ant [really not sure what] I read in one of the forums of a chap in New Zealand [nzmacro at http://www.nzmacro.50megs.com]taking shots through a magnifying glass, so I did a little experimenting, [hand held camera andmagnifying glass, was running out of hands]thisbeing one of the results. Not too good, but I'm sure with a bit of practise, the results will get better[OK, the things batteries were a bit flat, so I hada fair bitof time to get in on the angle !!]

I've given that magnifying idea a go to, it's not always easy is it? But I think you've done an excellent job there. A shame about the DOF but the head is in focus which is good.

ferny, the chap at the site i posted above does things like taking 4 shots of the same target, with focus from the back to front, then he merges the 4 shots to get full focus on the object. Perhaps it's not easy or possible to get a greater depth of field at such a close and magnified range. Anyway, it is funto experiment with, thanks for the comments !!
