I am thinking to use my Schneider Kreuznach 4/60 APO Componon lens reverse mounted on the sigma 180/3,5 macro.

Anyone tried this before, your expert opinions are very welcome.

Re: Hoverfly

I like this picture. The central placing, the vivid colour and the black background make it strong!

Ringflash?

Vespula vulgaris

I received the Raynox 250 in the mail yesterday.
The goal was to use it on the Olympus 60 macro. But it works with many of my lenses!

Re: Jumping spider!

The colour was a bit off; The colour from the surface in combination with the sun trough green foliage made it difficult.

I tried a Black/withe conversion.
