      Your bottom photo looks like a Georgia O'Keeffe painting. Nicely done.

              I'm starting to believe in that Darwin Theory of Evolution stuff because as I get older my skin is starting to look a lot like that monitor lizard's..........

                  Great shots Jim. Looking forward to more, now that the bugs are out. You're probably the only person in Denver, other than an exterminator, that is happy to see bugs again !

                    Here's one I took last week:



                    No macro lens for this, it was shot with an E-PL2 with Zuiko 50-200mm SWD and EC-14 teleconverter.

                        Now after 200 I feel that I can freely spam in this thread also

                        A cricket - I never knew it has so long horns... just couldnt get it big enough to fit into reasonable frame lol

                        sidenote: the leg aint broken

                        and something sweet (wel not yet but will be soon)... at least something different between all those bugs

                          Just a few with my new toy a 49/52mm reversing ring so I can mount the Om50 F1.8 on the front of the ZD50mm F2.0.

                          The set up.


                          The results.







                          Needless to say I'm pleased with these.
                          All the best

                            They look great..
                            didn't know one could reverse mount at the end of another lens..always thought it was to be with one lens only..Thanks for this tip and the results.

                                Wonderful shots everyone. I think those are the nicest reversed lens macros Ive seen actually.

                                here are some from yours truly.
