Tripod collar

It has a tripod collar which means you can rotate the camera to the correct angle. With only a camera mount you can’t do that. The longer working distance can also be useful with small fungi.

do you find

that there are any benefits to longer focal length macro lenses other than added working distance?

Thanks myxomop. It never will open up, but I’ll try to get a series of photos as it grows. This one is a different variety from some I have posted. This was sourced from near Rocky Creek Dam while others come from Booyong Reserve. They all grow near my back door now.

I use a Sigma 180mm macro on a Canon 1ds mk3, but it’s the lens that is most important.

but this one looks like it’s about to open up.

What on Earth do you shoot with? Your photos are sickeningly perfect in every way.
