For The Curious Ones:
Early images were taken with a Canon Rebel XTi and recently with a Canon 5D Mark II -- both with a Leica 100mm macro lens and adaptor. I try to shoot in bright sunlight at about 1:30 p.m. at 1/1000second and then exposure bracket at /8 or f/11 or f/16 at ISO 800. -- Doug Norkum
