Holy... right that's it, I am kitting myself out with this stuff as soon as I can!

That's a better photo than I have seen in published works, absolutely stunning.

That was the first one I bought but I didn't have a microscope.

Hi Ronny,

Truly Outstanding!

I've always shied away from elaborate macro setups, always rationalizing my preference for handholding as more "organic". Looking at this, and your link to John Hallmen's photostream has me rethinking this. . .well, maybe. . . Definitely food for thought -- and I've got all winter to play a bit.

. . . Your fly looks to be getting a bit dusty. . . always a nemesis for me in macro test shots! ". . .ugh -- it looked so clean before I shot it at 1:1. . ."

Still waiting for pics of the setup -- hope you've not abandoned the Legos. . .

Scott

Great link Ronny and also the photomacrography site which I've followed for a while - this is an interesting link : http://www.photomacrography.net/foru...ic.php?t=10661

I've just won 3 Zeiss objectives on EBay (x2.5, x10, x40) so looking forward to trying them out when they arrive !

Amazingly detailed photo - a testimony to the intricacy of even the simplest things, and a testimony to your talents and patient skill!

G'day Ronny

OMG - mate .... what a magic image !!!
Please tell me/us more about the "how" part of things

> is this an everyday house fly or something else?
> how do you catch the damn thing without squashing it?
> how do you keep it still?
> how do you get your multiple images
> etc etc etc

Regards, Phil
