Gorgeous on all levels.
Nice background, clean specimen, good lighting, low noise.
Seen the full size at Flickr, like this composition more than Part I.

I'm always interested to see how the NEX performs in macrophotography, what you showed is very promising.
How did you mount the JML, what is used to go from NEX to JML? ( adapters/bellows ?)
A photo of your setup would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Fread
Thank you very much for your kind words.

I used a Nikon to Nex adapter,bellows, a 52mm reverse adapter to Nikon and a 30,5mm to 52mm step up ring in order to connect Nex with JML. Also I used a couple O rings and some teflon tape in order to seal the JML from the light.

My new setup is under construction.When I finish (hope soon) I'll upload some photos.

Excellent indeed!
This one really shows what's possible with this little $9 JML lens.

babilon76,

Excellent image! Everything about it is exceptional. I'm a big fan of nice, soft backgrounds with gentle color transitions too, so ya got me there too!

Planapo,

Oh, I only wish it were still $9 Wink

So impressed with what that camera has picked up! I took some images of Ectemnius and was never satisfied with the outcomes. Cracker of a shot that one.
What sort of lighting did you use? And how does using a Sony for macro work, work out? I'm looking to buy an a6000 this February and just really wonder how it is I'll be using it essentially.
