The devil is in the details

Detail of a flower

I recently discovered the - perhaps - cheapest way of starting macrophotography. It obviously requires a few lenses, but that shouldn't be a problem for just about anyone. This detail of a flower in my backyard was photographed with my D80, fitted with the 50mm. In front of the 50mm was a reversed Minolta AF 35-70 3.5-4.5, an old lens I used 15 years ago. No couplingrings, just a steady hand, some bluetack and a paperclip. In Memoriam MacGyver...
