The Raynox Macro club

We don't have a Raynox club yet, do we? Show us your Raynox macros.
Here's an FA 35mm on its own at maximum magnification:

And here's an FA 35mm with a Raynox M-250 on the end:


It may be worth mentioning that the honey bee in the Raynox shot was only 2/3 the size of the bumblebee in the FA 35 shot.

It's a lot of fun alright. If you're planning on using a Raynox with your 55-300mm, I suggest the DCR-150, not the 250 that I've shown here.

Dan, I had to do a double take at which window I was looking at. I was photographing the same kind of bee on the same flowers with a 50mm macro tak a couple weeks ago.

Good thing the bees were preoccupied that I could get close enough with it while trying to move the camera into focus (easier than trying to focus the lens) and running the auto/manual switch all at once.

I was looking into nabbing a macro in the 100mm range if one came along for the right price, after seeing this, I guess I should open up my options.
