    Thanks Gayle. I'm still trying to get the hang of reversed lens macros. The working distance is very small and there's no aperture control, so the depth of field is incredibly short (about 2mm it would seem). The results also aren't quite as sharp as a real macro lens, but instead have an ethereal type quality to them.

    Alright that does it. I'm tracking back through all your photos. I stumbled onto your work after seeing some comments on my friends list and I'm utterly impressed.

    Brilliant work.

    Thanks David. Love the higher rez and being able to zoom into the detail.
