Re: SX40, Raynox 250 and the thirsty Bee.

Many thanks all.

I didn't put to full zoom because the face of the bee would fill the entire frame

So i zoomed out a bit, the focus is still hard since the 1 mm can still make all the difference, so i set the focus to manual, than set to burst mode, up the ISO a bit since it was late in the afternoon and some clouds were making the daylight pretty dim, then keep pressing the shutter button and taking photos while moving slightly forward and backwards, very slightly, between all of them there will be one that has the focus in right place.

Thats how i take my handheld Raynox shots
