    Nice job, especially with a 50mm considering the size of the subjects and limited working distance.

    Re: Riverside Macros

    Thanks Ben, Payne, Copy and Knight for looking and comments.

    The 50mm is now a major part of my kit and is always in the bag and with the tubes is now my overall macro combo. I keep looking at the 100mm but wonder whether i really need it.

    I dont get that many dragonflys and damselflies where i live so to have them on tap when i was away was a real treat.
