Thank you for the kind comments and lovely votes.

I have been rather fortunate to have had some amazing tips on macro photography from the master herself (' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

Insect photography is so fascinating.

FYI I have used some extension tubes taking this photo - either Neewer or Kenko. The Neewer ones broke so I replaced with Kenko on recommendation by Roz - and the Kenko tubes are stellar. The Neewer ones worked really well but they are too fragile

Amazing and fabulous shot, Paul. Hope the sheep and cows don't get jealous of your new photographic love ;-))

"I have been unable to visit any sheep or cows apart from those in our village and they are sick of posing for me."

Hahaha!

This is wonderful, Paul!

Congratulations on getting a lesson from the master. I think it would take more than that for me.

Unfortunately due to lockdown I have been unable to visit any sheep or cows apart from those in our village and they are sick of posing for me.
