A couple more of the Jumper... Not sure where the pollen came from. He was in a shrub.

Really cool - never seen a dented fly before. I'll have to keep an eye out for one.

I have a set of Hoya's that are +1, +2, +4. Then just got a Bower +10 off ebay for about 12$. You have to do some sharpening to the images, they are not crisp like a good lens. But I can make due fairly well being on a tight budget.

Generally now I use just the +10 and +4 together.

HTH
