I've received a number of comments on my recent insect photos, hence decided to share the changes I have made that made them possible.  At 89, I'm not as stable on my feet as I once was, and my eyesight is undergoing some changes.  To compensate, I recently acquired a used Olympus ZD 50-200 Autofocus lens and a used Leica-R shoulder stock (thanks, Doug Herr).  Currently, these are paired with my original Olympus E-510 4/3 camera body.  I have been quite pleased with the results I have managed to achieve with this setup.  Here are a couple of photos of the kit.



Though quite awkward in appearance, it works quite nicely.
