In case anybody is interested in some relatively inexpensive but very effective macro techniques:

Lens coupling, "twin lens reverse macro", even works for the cameras which you can't swap lenses.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
