This was from yesterday, helped me to do some experiments with DOF and DIFFRACTION (I took versions at F/9 and f/32 too) this one was at F/20 which looks like a good compromisse for this subject

Whoa, that looks almost larger than 1:1.
With a Canon and a 100mm macro I'd assume you have done some cropping with this image?

No, this is the original, I used a Raynox DCR-250, (2,5X or 8+ diopter) and shoot at this magnification.

This one was quite ok with me photographing it until I tried using fill flash. It disappeared as soon as that went off. Actually, even sooner. I assume it reacted to the pre-flash and was on its way away when the main flash hit.

Ah, the one from Sep 12th is a great composition, popo!
But now that I finally got the chance to see some exotic butterflies in the Nuremberg zoo, I'd like to add some of my own to this thread.
