Fortunately I had the scale on my table, there I did check the 7 mm and as we normally measure in inch so I turned that it made quarter of an inch as this is very small. But you did not quote the size of your extension tube as I have in three size 12mm 24mm and 36 mm and 85mm lens makes that very sharp.
A bit brightness contrast could bring more detail, well done good DOF and TFS.

Ola Paulo
Interesting insect, unknown to me.


Hello Paulo,
Very well captured. Like such macro against such OOF background. Personally, I would like to frame it vertically to get rid of blank space.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
