Decent enough set and the lighting looks better too. You are working with some difficult magnifications there so well done.
Thanks for that. I can now cope with up to 3x magnification without too much difficulty. After this it gets tricky - sometimes I can't even find the thing.
The lighting set up is a bit random sadly, it keeps getting bumped and changes so it is never the same twice.
(Apart from the large fly which was with a 60 mm lens)
I'm assuming you're in the UK. Where are you finding these things at this time of year?

Cancel. My bad, I've just read the text along side the pics.:rolleyes:;)
Very nice set. That moth fly is certainly a curious creature.
