For The Curious Ones:
Currently, early images were taken with a Canon Rebel XTi and later with a Canon 5D Mark II -- both with a Leica 100mm macro lens and adaptor. I try to shoot in bright sunlight at 1/500 or faster and then exposure bracket at /8 or f/11 or f/16 on ISO 800 or lower. -- Doug Norkum
