Hehehe... Are you using a dedicated macro lens or extension tubes? I assume this is not a reversed lens???

Definition: Tuffet
A tuffet, pouffe or hassock is a piece of furniture used as a footstool or low seat. It is distinguished from a stool by being completely covered in cloth so that no legs are visible. It is essentially a large hard cushion that may have an internal wooden frame to give it more rigidity.

I use Kenko extension tubes that I picked up a couple of years ago on sale. Normally I use my 50mm lens with them, but this day I was experimenting with different lenses and this photo is taken using my 24-105 zoom.

Tuffet??? I too don't know what a tuffet is. Had to look it up.
Remind me not to go swimming in your pool. Mind you, with the winter we've had, I think a lot of people in the US Northeast and Canada wish they'd have that problem about now.

Ha Ha. He is one of the harmless ones. I had some redbacks in my water feature when I was cleaning it a few weeks ago, and didn't notice them until I had their web around my arm. They can be quite nasty. Redback Spider, Latrodectus hasselti - Australian Museum (http://australianmuseum.net.au/redback-spider)

You're welcome anytime. Expecting 41 C this week so the spiders will have some company.

Looks good. Like the detail around the eyes.
