No Jane,  those are dead easy,  this is in flight much harder to capture.  As you know, I love a challenge. XX  However, just for you.  Raynox lens, easy peasy:

            

A doddle to do!!!   XXX

Hiyah Bob M8.  If you read the EXIF data above, you will see it was with my 135mm kit lens, the one that came with the camera.  My Raynox won't fit the 400mm, it's too large a diameter.  Thanks though.

Yep, you're getting better at this macro lark, Steve. (I'm only a bit jealous).  I just posted another attempt myself in my gallery - a beefly that obstinately refused to turn itself towards me.

Best Regards,

Steve

When you get round to clearing out your gallery.....don't be wasteful !

 

This might be a nice little earner for you ............................
