Canon EOS, Sigma 105mm Macro, pushed the DOF as far as I dare, used the camera's flash (diffused) to fire a slave off camera.

Necessity, being the Mother of invention...........True. I prefer natural light, but we had a grey winter.

Thank you for the kind words. I pushed my Macro lens to the limit to get as close as I could and still maintain sharpness.

DA wouldn't accept it as a print. My signature was too close to the border. I had to change the signature, and may have changed the mat..........You're too sharp Mike, I thought I did it so quickly that no one would notice.
