beautiful shot Jody. Love the rich color in this little guy and how it's offset a bit by the purple flower.

You mentioned the reversed 50/1.8. I have one of these (great clear lens even for a non-L series) and would like to get an adapter to try it out. What do you use? Also with all those extension tubes, the 150 and a reversed 50mm, that must have been one LONG lens barrel to hold. How did you find the weight?

Great macro, Jody. I have to get my reverse adapter out and try it again. I use an FD 50 1.4 lens reversed. Did you say you added another lens on top of it? wow, I'll have to try that. On second thought, how would one do that when the reversed lens is an FD? thanks
