Thank you all for your compliment. It was quite an effortbut it is well worth it.

I tried using hand held at first but was quite challenging to getit balance. (Wish I have a Stabiliser for my hand).

Decided to use a tripod with a remote shuttle release. Luckily the little fella (approx. 3 inches) was quite coorporative while I'm focusing. Used Auto and manual focusingwith f8 to get maximum DOF.

Yes Seemolf, the nikon 6T is well sufficient for most macro. I might consider getting the Raynox DCR-250 Macro Lens for even closer shots once I play around more with 6T.

Once again, thank you and glad you all like it.
