    Hi Steve,
    Thanks I tried to give a Victorian era naturalist feel to the image.

I still have transparencies packed away somewhere. I don't see how they could have been any better with special macro lenses. The film can only resolve so much.
    Hi Neal,
    I think technique is more important than lens choice. I regularly use apertures that go well into diffraction territory for photomacrography but for 3D subjects I would rather trade off resolution for depth of field.

    Hi JMO,
    This is the wallaby grass seed with white as a background I have not finished working in photoshop and the texture of the backlit paper that I used is showing through - a white translucent plastic or glass panel would have given a result more like Gayles. But I have posted this image for your information.

    In California, we have a similar thing (but not as ornate) called foxtails. They catch in dogs fur, and in clothing, a real nuisance
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Hi dsphotog,
    Foxtails are found in Australia they are an introduced grass species here and are weeds they can out compete native grasses.
