Very Happy I'm so glad you've persevered and are having fun with it. I agree that it doesn't replace standard macro, you can't really work on composition with such large subjects can you.
I think perhaps it's the challenge each time you attempt a shot that makes it so rewarding, aswell as getting to see things that not everybody has seen. Cool

Cracking shots - well done indeed for getting that close to a dragon. Cool

lubbley jubbley - I think we've been lucky this year where it's been so mild, there seems to have been some little creatures about most of the Winter.

I'm in the middle of butchering a Nikon zoom at the moment but I can't get the rear element out. It looks like I'll have to dismantle it completely and rebuild it - they seem to be made more substantially than the pentax zoom that I butchered. Crying or Very sad
