Coming back into macro season here under the equator - managed to get out for a test run in the backyard and found more activity on our clothesline than in the shrubs.

thanks for looking...

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yes these are with the MP-e 65mm.

I had also used the 580EXII and Lumiquest softbox, rather than the twinlights and I think the lighting is a bit better. I used a Wemberly bracket to locate the light as close as possible to the from of the lens.

Great shots.
I got a laugh out of the fly shot - "surely you could find somewhere else to rest your feet..."
