First Macros With a Reverse Ring

I am happy with the initial results, but the lack of more depth of field control is very limiting. I may try another focal length to see if I can get an extra sliver of depth in the future. There is a bit more explanation and alternate formatting on my blog about these same images: My New Baby - Discipulus Scripturae

I believe it was left in the 1.7 setting and I didn't touch the aperture ring during my test pics. I guess I'll go have a look and see if he's still out there, lol.

Well I feel like an idiot for not changing apertures earlier this AM. My only excuse is that it was before 7AM and I was too excited to do anything besides take some exposures. Anyways, it took me a few minutes, but I just found the mantis on a different bush and took a range of images from f/5.6 to f/22 and I believe this one was at f/8.
