When my wife was studying photography, I made up a macro kit for her. I had completely forgotten about it until I saw this thread. Will start playing with it this week.
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

I was asked by someone in China this morning, to send a fabric sample....then he asked why not take a pic of the fabric....so I was mucking about with my cell ph cam on "Close-up" mode but it wasn't showing enough detail. Then I got an idea.....I have a really old school microscope! I use it for fabric analysis....so I thought to try something...afterall, nothing nothing gained. Put the fabric under the m/scope with the light on....and took this pic wiff cell ph cam with the lend right above the eye-piece. Viola! Success! China-man can now see edzachary what the fabric construction is.

Meet Spikey, usually flies stalk humans. In my garden it is the other way around.  :laughing4:

First pic is a Ghost Cricket - a common desert resident
Second is a Dung Beetle about to take flight - Note the little dimples on its thorax, this is really uncommon.
Third is a Barking Gecko - These are the delightful little dudes behind the iconic "tjik tjik tjik tjik tjik" you hear resounding through the Kalahari at night.
Fourth is a dangerous scorpion species (Parabuthus raudus) which you're very likely to bump into in the Kalahari dunes.

All photographs were taken at Witsand Kalahari Nature Reserve, Northern Cape.
2 Wheels and 1 Camera...
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with your front wheel.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with your rear wheel.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.
