  1. My first Robberfly, not the greatest but the eyes came out nice and it even has a meal.

    25605156-L.

    Reversed 28 mm again.

    Not too shabby, Martin (translation: I wish I could do as well!). What tools were you using for this one?

  3. Hi Jerry, that was with the reversed 28mm lens duct taped to a 12 mm extension tube, a piece of milk jug in front of the built in flash, gives around 3:1 magnification, lightweight and even handholdable if you brace your self, I was standing up with nothing to lean on so I was lucky with this one, a couple of shots and he was gone.

    Thanks!
