At this day everything fitted - except that no dedicated macro lens was 'on board'. Naturally *sigh* .

But what I found out: even with an ordinary super zoom lens you can get quite decent macro photos. And with the numerous attempts in mind, how often I tried to get a really satisfying picture of this species I am very happy with this approach.
