More MP-E Macros

Tried some more macros today with my new MP-E lens. I can just about get handheld shots at 1x magnification, if the subject isn’t too jumpy and there’s no breeze at all. Fortunately the ladybird was very sedate as she rambled round Ele’s hand.

Then I popped the camera on the tripod and got very close to some familiar coins. I love the tiny details revealed by the MP-E, especially the rich patina of scratches and micro-crap that covered the coin.
