D5100 macro shots

Been playing around with some extreme macro with my new D5100. It is amazing being able to look at things so closely. Even though the small depth of field makes focusing hard. Can you guess what they all are?

Re: D5100 macro shots

The other 3 pictures are of everyday objects found in most any home.

Nikon 55-200 mm fully zoomed with a Nikon 50 mm 1.8d attached backwards to the end of the zoom lens. I got the D version of the 50mm so I could manually adjust the aperture when it is mounted backwards. I got a cheap male to male adapter to be able to attach the lenses together. Then camera on a tripod and a homemade light box.

Looks like this.

One of them looks like a ballpoint pen tip.
