Nice shot Ken....there are things you don't realise until you get in close....i remember an image of a Cinnabar moth catterpillar i put into a competition when i was in the local photogrphic society and the other members could not belive how hairy it was.

Thanks Dilwyn and Paul!....sorry the info didn't show up as I was using manual focus and an extension tube!...the lens is a Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro,,amazing piece of kit,,and I was trying an old set of pentax extension tubes I found in my old gear. They seem to work quite well ,they shorten the focal distance by varying degree'sdepending on how many you use,means you can get that much closer..hope this helps, I'm still learning the trade so alot is trial and error,,more error than succsess.lol..........Ken
