Thanks for viewing my pictures and taking the time to comment.Much appreciated!
I’m a dutch artist and nature-photographer(especially macro)currently based in N-Spain.
this is simply amazing! I need your lens!!!
Thanks!However I didn´t use my MP-E 65 mm 1-5 x macrolens for this,but my EF-S 60 mm f2.8 USM macrolens together with extension tubes.Cheers,Jim

I need it too! lucky you ;)
now that’s what I call close-up! stunning colours in his shotgun riddled armour jimmy :))
Jimmy a great macro capture – love the colours and the depth within them, it almost has an abstract feel to it – amazing that you can get that from EF – S 60mm, I will have to get mine back out and brush it off.
In combination with a set of extension tubes you also can get great results!The MP-E 65 mm 1-5 x macrolens is a lot sharper though.Thanks for your nice comment,John.Cheers,Jim
