I'm Going (extension) Tubing, He Bellows

Challenge #25 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Some long lenses have a minimum focus distance as large as 30 feet... who thought that was a good idea? Put more space between the sensor and the rear of the lens and you can focus much closer. This challenge is for shots, macro or otherwise, made using a lens mounted on any type of glassless extension: tubes, bellows, an empty toilet paper roll and duct tape.... ;)

I was set up to try to photograph Bumble Bees when I heard this guy fly into the scene. I had all I could do to focus, frame and fire shutter release. This image is a 1x1 aspect from full frame, no other cropping.
