Well worth the effort!
Thanks! Though the other dozen shots that are blurry would potentially argue it's not really cost effective.

I don't often try to take macros of insects on film; generally just results in too many wasted shots.
It's still worth devoting a few frames at an attempt. I can't say how much light was available for the shutter speed you needed. But it looks like you could be flirting with a wide aperture making it that much harder on the RH side version?

Yep. While it was a clear sunny day, the flowers were in shade so it wasn't that bright. I think I was around f4 or so.

I'd be happy to shoot a whole roll for two like that.
