I love the detail produced by the MP-E65; stunning mechanics the closer one gets. Well done with this shot! Smile

can't go past this photo, it is truly amazing. I'm going to read your macro blog. I'm only using a reverse ring for my macro photography so I need to get up close and personal with my subjects and most of them find me (the giant of them) intimidatingSad and as you probably know there are a lot of limitations using a reverse ring, however, I am grateful for my reverse ring, It has enabled me to capture a whole new world, I never took notice of before.

Thank you so much for checking out my 'mama, I'm scared' image and naming the little critter Grin, I'm going to google it.
Much appreciated

I don't think it's a big issue Ava. My MP-E65's working distance is 4 inches and below. The minimum magnification starts at 1X (1:1), and the working distance at this magnification is 4 inches, front of lens to subject.
