Shots taken (at smaller than 1:1) with multiple extension rings, diopters, or teleconverters of extremely small subjects typically less than 1 inch (2.5 cm)
Red tubeworms are typically very skittish, but this one allowed me to get close enough for one super-macro shot before disappearing into its protective tube. Howe Sound, BC, Canada.
