I took my Pringles can flash extender out this morning. Seems to be working very well for me.

Awesome shot of the fly. Did you take that with the strait 100mm 2.8 macro or did you use an extension tube or something? I don't think I could get that much detail with my 35mm reverse lens set up.

A spider - upside down - trying to hide from the rain.

I used the little flash gun that comes with the Olympus OMD EM1-Mark 2 for this so I could keep ISO down. About 1/2 the original size.

Thanks, I'm not sure, that day I used the bare lens, lens with 36mm extension tube and lens with EX1.4III extender(using 12mm extension tube to couple them, bare lens and EXIII don't fit together). The exif shows only the lens.
As it's quite a crop(about 20-25%) from the RAW all are possible.

I don’t have any special technique, this hover fly was buzzing around our Shishto plants (that’s the leaf it’s resting on). We have had heavy rains for most of the day, and based on how it was acting I think it was just trying to dry it’s wings. It had moved from leaf to leaf as I approached, but I just moving slowly and chased it around, I guess it decided I wasn’t an actual threat, or stopped caring.

Below is my set up (sorry for the terrible iPhone photo and background mess), Pringle can taped to the flash. Canon RP, full set of extension tubes and the mighty NiftyFifty on those. It was handheld, I used the 5x zoom in the viewfinder to find focus on the eyes. 1/180, f11, ISO 100.

Sometimes when I'm shooting a lethargic subject it will wake up and start going about it's normal routine. That's what happened while photographing this Saw Fly. The tricky part is tracking a moving subject when the frame at 4x is only 5.7mm wide by 3.7mm high.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Don't know how you do it, I can barely manage 1:1.

Been shooting single frames hand held for over a decade -lots of muscle memory. One of the many benefits of not focus stacking.
