f16, ISO 200, 1/200sec

Taken with Sigma 150mm macro, sigma 1.4 teleconverter and Raynox DCR 250.
Flash was held in right hand and camera in left (one handed shooting is darn hard - though its easier I find with the left hand and the gap between thumb and finger cradling the lens barrel). A common fly sitting on my window - which made focusing easier as I was able to lean on the window for some support - but of course it does limit my working angles for lighting and camera - but its worked very well in this case.

Camera:Canon EOS 400D
Lens:Sigma 150mm macro, 1.4 teleconverter and Raynox DCR 250

Fantastic shot, I know what you mean by one handed being difficult but it does not seem to have hampered you. Ann

Many thanks all Smile
as for paying I wish I could - though rotting fruit and honey can work well so I hear
