    Great album, I love close up shots! Have you ever tried flipping your lens around? Cheap trick, but it works like a charm and it gets you a lot closer than you can with close up filters! Even that ant would look like a giant ;-)

    You're welcome! This album makes me want to go to the nearest flower shop :-) Question: I have never used an extension tube, I always find them expensive... Where did you find one that fits a Zenit camera?

    easy...10 euro on Ebay (east europe or UK) :) The step-up is composed of 3 parts, so you can manage the macro effect ...love it. Run run go go!!!! I want to see your photos!!! :D
