Default Closeup with stacked diopters

I've been practicing shooting closeups with LC55 and Raynox 250 stacked. Please take a look at my post in the Closeup section (duh...) and C&C. Thanks!

Cool pics, Saly!
How are you able to stack the LC55 and the Raynox 250?

Thanks Dabbler - I simply screw in the LC55 to the adapter/extension tube, then the Raynox clips on top of it using the built-in spring clip.

That's very interesting.
I seriously thought that the Raynox was too deep to clip onto the LC55.
I'll have to try it out when I get the chance.
It's fascinating to see all the tiny parts of insects that our eyes can't normally see.

Another great macro series Saly, I love #3 (for the wings detail) and #4

Hi Saly - I am absolutely gobsmaked - those shots are fantastic. 3&4 are out of this world and 3 should be in National Geographic. Your composition is excellent. Gobsmaked cant wait to see your next post.

Hi Saly,

I'm really envy of your close up images. Is there any way I can combine with B300 and LC55 on FZ40?

Thanks to all of you for the kind words! I really appreciate it! No body appreciates me at home, my family just says "Yew, bugs are disgusting" and won't even look at my pictures...

UJEFROCNCOL - I'm stacking two closeup lenses (they screw on like filters), so I don't think it will work on a teleconverter. Sorry...

Default I thought bugs were cool when I was a kid

..and I still do!
I love looking at the super closeups, so keep 'em coming.
Your family doesn't know what they're missing!
