Recently I visited the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory to test out some Kenko DG Extension Tubes. I mounted the extension tubes and a M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens on my Olympus OM-D E-M1X.

One of our readers, Ray Miller, joined me at the facility and took a photo to help document this camera technique.
