No pictures posted just their links. You'll understand why if you read on.
Whilst taking pictures of the hornet I noticed a dead fly. It was showing pretty blues so I thought I'd take a picture. A freshly made adaptor connects a 50mm reversed lens to the digital camera. It holds the lens nicely, but not if knocked too often. I was adjusting the lens, getting it right, and then it dropped off and squished the fly. So here are the pictures of it (vignetting left). DOF is a bit shallow. Bit? Very shallow.

I just made a reverse lens macro adapter. I think I am going to try it out, and if I get some interesting shots, i will post them. See what you have done ferny!

I remember that I had to eat Thai Green Curry with Fried Rice after posting this. :lol:

Thanks for the comments all, and sorry for making your stomachs turn.

Don't blame me chako! This is an old technique that I'm addicted to to.
We've got a group for CRP, perhaps we need one for RLAD (Reversed Lens Addiction Disorder). :lol:

Hah! isn't that the truth.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I also have a spanking new bellows system for a Konica camera that I got from a garage sale last year. Problem is, I never owned a Konica 35mm SLR. So I have been thinking of converting it for a Canon system....maybe one of these days.
