Haha, no it's not easy at all, getting the focus point right is tough. I discarded a lot. Thanks for the compliment.

Good shooting, I know only too well the trials of nailing focus with bugs. You did well in what looks like daylight (no flash)
I know what i like, If not always why.

Thanks. Yes, daylight, no flash and handheld as I'd left the tripod in the car....

I always leave the tripod at home.
All my macros are shot handheld. I end up on my knees, laying down, climbing into bushes, trees. Tried the tripod once, just not for me, out in the field.
Keep a look out for a Set of ext tubes. Fairly cheep and you'll get more magnification

👍👍👍👍

Lol. I can't get up if I get down.... I have used the tripod quite a bit, fine for Spids, they don't move too much, useless for anything that flies...
