Niice.
I have a Vivitar 2 x Macro Converter from my film camera’s (Nikon)
That combined with my 28-85 IF ED lens gave me some great Macro shots too.

They have beautiful glass in there.

Nice pics again. I love the mantis picture, you do not get them over here.

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

Thanks guys ..
Editing = Photoscape / resized to 1280 – quality 90% (?) , minor colour correction to correct for flash ( Flash tends to wash out the colours )

Really have to run those high F stops , for this lens F22 is as high as it will go ( or as small as the aperture will go ) .

Most lenses become a bit soft when used at max (either high or low) aperture. Yours appears to be tack sharp.

Trade off’s … The secret (for me) is light , as God said = Let there be light . Light helps to freeze an image , it also helps to bring out details . So if you use enough light , it helps to offset the softening from the high F stop . But the cost is washing out the colour . So depending on the background and the subject , there can be a huge amount of flash burn to correct / or attempt to correct .

In the Bee photo you may be able to see a lot off colour has been washed away by the flash .
