Great shot

Dirk this is amazing again, now we are able to explore the insect world much better than we all ready did, this is a great macro off the Butterfly's head. Well done.

This shot was done FREEHAND

and out of about 50 shots there were only 3 or for with usuable fokus - dof is about 0.5 mm ! Thanks for your attention and rating ! You should try wit your E300 - just hold the 50 mm lens reversed close to your Prime lens wich could be a 100 -200 mm one !
