MP-E 65mm arrived on Saturday morning past. Here's a selection of shots from my first weekend around the garden.

Really love this lens so far and looking forward to spending a lot of time with it. Out of interest would someone know what the first bug and the green bug are called, I've seen them a few times but not familiar with their names.

and lovely shot of a Dung fly. There is a myth that this lens is hard to use, you have shown otherwise.

Wonderful shots, especially for your first time out with the lens. You've made me look forward to eventually getting one even more :)

#4 is fabulous. Has a beautiful glow about it too.
