This is an amazing macro shot. Love all your photos in your gallery. Hope someday I can have a Nikon camera with macro lens...

Thank you so much Fred! indeed, a Nikon camera helps a lot but this one is made without macro lens, just usual wide Nikkor lens (old one, manually...) and macro rings without any electronic transmission...

This is different! Haha, and that write up made my day. I was intrigued by that macro ring, have to go and Google it, I think I have seen it on Ebay though...
