Another tiny flower in my yard. This makes 3 flowers now that are classified as weeds and eradicated from most peoples' lawns.

This is another bellows shot, fully extended, no crop. For some type of scale: 2 or maybe 3 of these flowers to cover a US dime. I think it might be a little sharper but not sure if it's a limitation of my gear or knowledge.:oops: I have ordered adapters that will allow me to reverse mount the 50mm to the front of the bellows. I have also ordered a cheap 4x microscope objective to play with & a mount for it to M42. A few of these pieces are coming from China & judging by the shipping details they are coming via canoe! So will continue to play with what I got. Anyone with experience with bellows please feel free to offer advice/criticism.

BTW 30 stacked, F/8, ISO 100, 1/160th.

Stuck inside under lockdown and on a rainy day, I decided to see how my 2006 vintage lens would work with the formidable EOS 5DsR. I had bought my other half some flowers to cheer her up, so it was only natural to take them back and use them as a macro subject... Right???  :p

Considering the Stamen's Anthers (the deep red bits) are only about 5mm long it held up better than I feared.

No flowers were harmed in taking this image and they are now back in the possession of their intended. ;-)a

Not sure which one of these I like best. I like them all for different reasons but just no favorite.

This one was the most difficult. 29 images focus stacked which took my old mid 2012 MacBook quite a lot of chugging to get the job done. This last one looks to me like a guy got all dressed up for a night on the town and things got a little crazy, got beat up, and staggered home. LOL

Definitely new to macro, but thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. I bought extension tubes for my 85mm lens, but it just didn't do the trick. So I received a 50mm macro today from lensrentals.com.
My first couple shots (or couple that 1/2 way turned out). I was out in the yard shooting birds and came in to try this. I forgot to turn my ISO down.

Oh well, this is going to be fun trying to get the hang of this.

Thanks... Yes - that was actually infuriating. I ended up using Glycerin mixed with it. That helped a little.

Thank you. It was actually a blast.

Now I just have to decide between the macro lens and the 200-600 I've been eyeing.

Have you tried placing the liquid in the subject with a syringe and needle? I got one and it made a world of difference.
