Just had to have a look at what I got when I used this bl**dy 
impossible to use on wildlife lens.This shot is not in any way perfect
but I love it, I am absolutely gob smacked with this piece of glass
and would love to have one, even though it's the most frustrating thing 
to use. Let me know what you think.

That's pretty darn good for a first attempt mate. Can you remember what magnification it was at?

Haven't looked at mine but think there all out of focus. Not as easy as you think this macro lark. 
           Had a very good morning as usual on these club walks and learnt a lot. I will have to practice a lot 
           Thanks to Steve , Ian and Mike for there help and advice and especially Steve who lent me his macro lens, which is  better than using extension tubes. Alan

Not a great shot, but interesting if you study it. Loads of spider babies!!!!According to Mr Perry, this is a Wolf Spider.

Nice one Steve. Looks like something from the Alien movie.

Cheers Mike
The Damsel fly look,s Ok. As you said the Spider is interesting, and, I prefer interesting to
everybody has one perfect shots. So it's the Spider shot for me every time,This is probably
why I don't enter competitions . I like it.
So jump in the bath then get Mrs J to lovingly rub in the Ralgax to those tender spots.
