Must confess to being a bit discouraged about posting here as a rather NASTY troll has been attempting to post comments on EVERY image I post. (each comment he posts is filled with links to MANY pornographic sites) I do have comment approval turned on so nothing makes it to public view but it's extremely discouraging to post and then get a porn filled comment after doing so!
That said, I've been experimenting with using extension tubes and my 18-55mm Nikon lens to see if I can get adept at the combination in order to get macros without lugging my HEAVY 105mm Nikkor macro lens when traveling. Think I'm FINALLY getting the hang of it and realize that I simply MUST use my tripod in order to reduce blurring that occurs when shooting with extension tubes. Meantime, here's an image taken today that, in spite of blurring, I rather like and hope you enjoy too.
