K5 + 55-300mm & ext tube

Taken today. I know its spiders again but they are easy subject matter.

Using the 55-300mm @ 300mm with an extension tube on the K5. I just wanted to see how it performed.

It was rather breezy and even at a distance of one meter or less, the movement caused havoc. That said, the lens performed very well. I need to use it again in calmer conditions.

Best regards
Inspiration is rarer than a plate glass camera.....

Never thought of using tubes with the 55-300mm but these images make me want to have a go. Now, where are all those spiders hiding.
