Wow, that central detail looks quite good!

Thank you ...
Yeah the thicker Close focus filters get a little funky toward the edges , so you need to keep the subject in he middle .

I have a smaller +8 thats actually good ...

Perhaps I should buy larger ones ( CFF ) so as to utilize more of the middle of the filter ?

Wouldn't you need a larger lens ?

I've been watching small spiders, including a small jumping spider like this one, cling nervously to the underside of the leaves of an ornamental fig out the back here for several days. Twice I've seen wasps, much like this one, pick them up and carry them off.... far too quick for me to catch.

Edit: That wouldn't work would it? - it's taken me a half hour, and I got there, but it wouldn't work. Those wasps weren't the only thing too quick for me ....

Matt, you do some amazing macro work with lenses that normally aren't thought of as true "macro" lenses. Bravo!

Since winter is upon us here in Idaho, I'm going to have to switch to some indoor photography mighty soon. I've got an older Sigma 28-80mm lens that will produce some very sharp 1:2 macro images. I'm thinking of trying some of the close-up filters on it and see what it will do. You've inspired me!
