Even hear the "assume a spherical chicken" joke?
Nope...though if you post it here the mods will likely move it to the joke thread. PM me if you like...I always like a good joke...

Nice macros! How much extension did you add? I am curious how you managed the focus with the lens set at 1:1. Do you put the camera to eye and just keep moving closer until the subject is in focus?

Thanks! And yes thats exactly what I do. I have naturally pretty stready hands ( I shoot in gun competitions from time to time) but the wind cancels that .
