Adapted macro with the Q

I just had a first try with 'proper' macro on my Q10. I reverse-stacked a Chinon 28 / 2.8 onto a Jupiter 135/ 3.5. It needs plenty of light to get a decent picture on the Lcd. This is the best of my first few shots:



(This shows edges of the petals of a tiny gypsophila flower)

Focusing distance was/is about 25mm (lens glass to subject)

Thanks I did the original post from my mobile, and couldn't get to the BB code on flickr from there. On desktop and now inserted the image properly

Very nice! Looks like ice. We've been seeing lots of super-tele work with the Q; now it's time to see what the Q offers for extreme macro. I've done a bit of testing with my two macro lenses, but want to get into lens reversal and stacking as you have done here.
