    Hahaha. Scare folks away... I'd like to see a thread with a few of those 400mm(bellow) shots in it, those sound very intriguing.

Stop your lense down and check your image for depth of field composition etc. learn to handle wind. Take your time and shoot shoot shoot. I think I'll stop here before I scare folks away��
    how did you support a 400mm on bellows? sounds like an interesting setup.

    The lens comes with a tripod mount. Use that put your bellows in between the camera and the lands, of course and shoot away. This system works extremely well for insects, who have a tendency to leave or die while you're setting up

    you're using tapatalk I'm guessing? if you are replying to a post or posting something new, you can hit the 'three dots' button in the upper right corner of tapatalk and it'll bring a menu that gives you the 'attach picture' or 'insert image link' options.

    if you're using a typical browser, you can click the 'insert image' button (looks like a tree in a square), which will let you put in an image link from somewhere like photobucket, or flickr or something...or you can attach the image as a file attachment (you may have to click 'go advanced' down at the bottom to get to where an attachment can be uploaded. you shouldn't have to do that on a new thread, but on a reply, you might.)

    hope that helps, I should probably make a little 'how to' article on that.
