Happen to see a fly while trying to capture mealworm picture.

Pretty satisfying with the reverse lens shooting on them.

Must be real close to the object. That's why it's best used on object with very minimum movement.

For those two insect pictures I took, I'm using a 18-55mm lens reversed. Shooting distance is almost as close as 1 inch plus to the object.

Another thing must take notice is that the object got to be brightly lited so that the lens can capture it's presence. That's why I took the pictures under the sun just now. Sometime indoor light not bright enough. Plus the more you zoom in the brighter the place must be.

The main reason I learning this is to capture small object in detail. Especially I'm keeping shrimps now so it'll be fun and challenging to learn this trick and produce nicer pictures.
