Very nicely lit! the pollen on the fly and the color work well for the image.

Nit - the eye/head portion is slightly off...maybe being a little more parallel could've given more detail?

Excellent shots. Agree the second shot is better.

Great shot !!!

Did you use anything other than the lens (stacking, tubes, etc.)?

No stacking, but I used a 20mm Kenko tube. I routinely use the extension tube when shooting with the 100mm L.

Thanks. I bought the tubes quite some time ago. Never opened the box. Time to try them. I had no idea that they would work so well.

I found when using the 100mm L that I was often bumping into the 1:1 magnification limit. I'm usually in AF mode, and AF won't work properly at the limit. So I started to use the 20mm extension tube. That gets me to about 1.2x, not much more than 1.0 you might say, but in practice it makes a big difference for me. The AF doesn't work quite as well, but it still works.

And that gets into the topic of AF. I find it effective to use AF initially when spotting a bug. It is easy to locate the target and AF on it when some distance away. Then I "zoom" in (not really zooming, of course, unless it is an older meaning of zoom). That allows me to frame the bug the way I want. When I get close, AF can be balky, but it is often still better than what I can manage in MF. But often, once close to the specimen, I will go to MF, just by releasing the AF-On button (I use back-button focus).
