    While I'm not a big fan of insects, these are very impressive shots Siejones.

    These are great. Could you show your home made flash snood diffuser thingy?

    The second one is really good, nice shoot.
    I can never get them to stay put long enough.

    These pictures look phenomenal.
    I had no idea the NEX 55-210mm was so big (even without the raynox attached to it it looks huge).

    I laughed, too. That is crazy - but the results are impressive.

    These photos are phenomenal. Really something!
    Did you have to use an adapter ring to be able to use the raynox on the 55-210mm? Because the 55-210mm has a 49mm filter thread and the raynox attaches via a 52mm to 67mm snap on mount.

    nice shots

    Very nice close ups.

    Your flash is quite inventive and clearly looks like it works.
