I like to make macro pictures. And I like to have a special macrolens, but at the moment I make this pictures with a reversed lens.

This one was made with a Takumar 35mm lens reversed.

The original shot. Not harper or hatever. Only put a frame around.

I hope you like.

Best regards,

Hello Don

Excellent macro and wonderful colors.
This for me is a fly.
different from the mosquitos that we have for here.
The resolution of this picture is of high quality.


Hello Don, good to see your presence.

Dear Don,

hmm.. I tried taking a pic with a reversed lens, but I didn't get anything at all.. not even a bit of light!... so I guess I'm doing something wrong eh?

You on the other hand, do know how to do it! this is just great!!!!!!
Sharp and full of colors! A great one Don!!!


Hi Don,
I LOVE it!! Aren't these annoying insects something else?! What wonderful colors, perfect sharpness and detail.
Kind regards,

Bonjour Don.
On dirait qu'elle a un oeil crevé car il est plat sur une partie....
Mais sinon ta photo est très nette et très bien cadrée.
Une magnifique image digne d'un magazine sur les insectes.
Bravo !

Excellent Don and well done on the use of the lens. Very good colour and superb detail. TFS,

The way you captured its eye is outstanding! Great sharpness and pleasing colors.

Mooie macro.

Tjemig Don.. da's een scherpe! Heel mooi stukje foto werk!
Ik moet je eerlijk bekennen dat dit voor mij de eerste keer is dat ik een vlieg van zo dicht bij zie! Mooie details! TFS

Hai Don,
Hé ba ik wil geen kiss hoor, krijg gelijk kippenvel haha.
Ja erg jammer dat je er niet bij was, het was een superdag. Volgende keer beter.
Gr, Jacqueline

Nice sharp details and the shining colours are well reproduced...
