    To be fair, these are pretty tight shots with the width of the frame equal to about 5/8" (15mm), less than the diameter of a dime.

    They were shot with a Minolta 55mm/f1.7 plus extension tubes on a Panasonic G1 micro 4/3 camera.

    Great shots, Ron. I wouldn't have guessed any of them in several tries.

    I do not know your camera or lens. I do not have a macro lens so I am using a 55mm prime & extension tubes. On my G1 the 55mm is equal to a 110mm lens on a 35mm film camera (crop factor x2).

    Very fun to try and figure out. I would have guessed things like dried moss and lichen!

    I would have never guessed the peanut shell... mainly because it looks like it has a skull in it down towards the bottom...
