Hide and seek caterpillar by mrrossi Hide and seek caterpillar by mrrossi
one of my first tries with stacked lenses. I used my 105mm macro lens and on top of that a reversed f1,8 50 mm.

At the time I shot the picture, I was just experimenting with it. Since I didn't had a couple ring, I used gaffa tape to fix it together and to get a free hand I taped a SB-800 flash on top of that.
I know how it sounds but it was really really safe and worked quite well. Now I've got one and I think there will be many macro shots to follow.

Please tell me what you think.

This is really nice. Love the colors. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of butterfly is it?
