Nice series - really like your third one. It definitely says something when you can get quality shots with that much close-up add-ons with a kit lens (I like my kit lens, too). Hope your weather improves so you can post more.
Yeah well some people think they HAVE to spend high hundreds if not thousands of dollars for HQ extreme lenses.....

When actually diopters maybe not to the 1:1 degree but those are few pretty tiny things anyways.... or ulrawide where an inexpensive front 0.45x WA lens can do pretty darn well as well, if either are just an occasional need/curiosity.... and 10-100x less costly.
Still can't beat a decent prime though!
