Sorry to be so late, to welcome you to the forum.
Your lens and ring obviously work, and you're on your way!

The "boxing gloves" on these things always make me smile :)

Thank you ChrisR, happy to be here with this community, I feel like i can be understood here, at home it's another question :D

yes, I did a little digging here and around and I found out what I needed to start.
I need to learn how to use ZS, I can see some little imperfections.
Step by step, little by little.

So close to home yet so alien in appearance, why should we be looking elsewhere? Great photo :D

It's a quite beautiful beast but an unwanted invasive pest that is killing most of the palm trees at the mediterranean area, did you collect it at Paris?

I suppose that it is a dead posed specimen, if so after your answer I'll move it to the Technical and Studio Photography -- Macro and Close-up forum.

Great angle, setup and picture of the specimen.
Only thing i would do is mayby different background but thats a personal taste. :D

Ho thank you for all your comment.
Yes it's a dead specimen sent by a friend of mine, collected in his garden near Nice.
Unfortunately they killed his palm tree :(
