Your ant image is splendid! Excellent detail for such high magnification. I would be proud to call this one my own.

Camera? Lens? Lighting? Exposure?

Thanks Tom for the info. I am using a Canon 7D and I use a Sigma 70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro. I just recently got 3 Extension tubes so will try those.
Regards,
Gordon
