Q: DFA 100 macro/ Butterfly

I have been experimenting with the Q and DFA 100 macro at the local butterfly house. Focus peaking makes this easier but it is still tricky.

What little macro I've done really turns me on my head, as it's hard to have an f/2.8 lens (or f/3.5 on mine) but need to shoot past f/8 for more depth at these distances. This looks very promising though, you're trying harder than I have!

Looks like you have the focus right on but as stated above DOF is an issue
