Spectacular shots... how many images did you stack?

I love that you included some foreground & background to give your photos some context.

Great Macro shots - never heard of the macro adaptor - what does it do to an existing macro lens??

I have a Sigma 105mm Macro - would such an adaptor make for better, closer macro shots?

Cheers

There's your answer. The Raynoxes are pretty neat. Here's a link:

Thanks leftfluss - have looked at the thread and the Raynox website - does this lens work equally with a macro lens and a zoom(eg 18-250). Would inserting an extension tube work just as well, worse or better??

Would be interested in comments - I love Macro and the Raynox looks a good - and not expensive - purchase.

I guess there is much less depth of field using one?

Cheers...John

I'm glad that you liked

These shots are without image stacking. I used small aperture and diffused flash
