Thanks, Carol. I have heard the LC55 is a much better lens. Please have a look at that and then decide. I have found that for Raynox, the DoF is very shallow, and you will find it more and more difficult as you zoom further. But, if you have the patience, the reward is certainly good.

Thank you. The last set, of eggs, I understand are the eggs of the stink bug, or the soldier bug. I have seen the green ones flying off and on in my home. Should wait for them to hatch and see which variety these really are.

Beautiful set of macro shots Raghu!
I am also convinced that with the L55 should have a higher yield, but it remains a beautiful photographic adventure!
Keep it up ...

Thank you Alex. I am glad you liked these shots. Raynox is definitely a good lens, but you need the patience to work with it. May be this is true of any add-on close up lens too, I have no experience with other lenses.
