Nice cactus image!
my reverse lens macro is two lenses taped together with the lenses facing (so the second one is backwards). it isn’t the same as the lens baby because you can get really close with this technique. Oh also you have to shut off auto focus and just move your camera to get in focus.

The Lensbaby though can only do really close. I have the Muse. You have to use the Muse in AV mode only and there is no focusing except using the tilt swivel of the actual lens. This lets you blur the parts you want and focus what you want. And with lens inserts you get the bokeh designs like stars and hearts. Their other lenses let you do more and do things like tilt shift effects. It must be a challenge with the two lenses taped together! I bet there is a group on Flickr that you can check out.

Love it. Love cactus anyway, anyhow and anytime! And especially when in bloom.

Imaginative theme interpretation! They do look like they are in eerie lockstep. Shades of “Invasion of the Bodysnatchers”.

It’s too bad that the flowers don’t last very long on the cactii!
