After an exchange of ideas with Adrian I had a hunt round to see what lenses I had acquired and forgotten about over the years. One thing I found was a cheap set of add on macro lenses. Fortunately these fit the Sigma 28-80mm macro lens so I decided to try out the +10. I'm sure I had a play with it when I first got the set but for some reason was disappointed with the results. Probably trying hand held, which is not a good idea for macro shots.
First a 'full frame' photo of a Hoverfly using the above combination:
All the rest will have been cropped to a greater or lesser extent:
Finally a couple of stacked photos:
3 stacked shots of a small daisy flower:
5 stacked shots of a ripening miniature bullrush.
No apologies for yet another Bee on Sunflower short video but I was more than a bit chuffed with the result using the extra +10 lens:
Considering how little I paid for the fox Macro +10 add on lens the results were very pleasing to me. The plants were held in 'helping hands' and given extra illumination from an LED ring flash kept on continuous light.
