Pana Leica 45mm with 16mm extension tube, gives the same magnification as the Olympus 60mm + Raynox 250.

Working distance felt about the same with this setup.

Pics taken at max magnification. Except the first one.

All around f11. Lighting was hard due to the narrowness of the nest chamber walls which appear to be slightly translucent as the red parts of the towel underneath has bleed through.

I could only use one paper foam diffuser at the front of the lens and bent backwards over the flash, otherwise it would not light the ants

Quite a different look from the earlier Olympus 60mm pics

Rare, unknown, and probably undocumented Melophorus species ant

The queen is around 7mm
