Well, looks like you are doing a pretty good job without it ! Will reserve judgement till I see the photos taken with flash !

Thanks Pam.
Actually there is one more step to go, with a proper flash that I need for the macro lens.
We always knew that lighting was most important...

hahaha, that's for sure ! But the quality of your photos now offsets that expense I reckon...

Ah, yes, but the toilet roll extension ring sure was cheaper.

What a great collection of beetles and bugs Martin... New camera is a definite improvement on the old one with the toilet roll !!!
