Whoa! You need to put a disclaimer on the post! That is so sharp, I almost cut my eyeballs! Superb, Matt! That is, without a doubt, the sharpest photo you have posted to date. I'm not sure where you go from here. I don't think it's possible to get any sharper. That's some mighty fine work, my friend.

One of those old 50mm lenses ... Mated to a Macro Adapter , Sometimes I think for about $100 worth of lens and macro adapter you can kick a $1000 macro lens in the butt ...

The more I think about a reversing ring - To camera body - The less I like it
What I will try one day is a reversed lens in front of another lens ... That might be interesting .. ( Lens stacking )

Indeed a fine and sharp image, as well as an excellent pollination illustration.
