took these with the A70-210mm with 64mm extension tubes. all at f11, 210mm, onboard flash. this is a good setup for larger macros or close focus. it gives you about 3', 1m of distance. perfect for dragon flies but they were not cooperating today.

roy

this is good one that looks like ready to spring into long jump.

You have lost temporarily the magic of having them to pose for you? I have not had much luck the last 2 weeks too.

3 ft distance will give pretty good space from critters or whatnots. What is the magnification factor for a 64mm extension & 3 ft distance shot? 1:2 or 1:2.5? I have lost.

daniel,
i really don't know. there's a formula for it but i usually just look at a mm ruler to get the mag.
