Appreciate the comments, Jim, Wayne and Moose and Moose's heroic efforts.

Thanks, but hardly heroic, at least by my definition.  😁

Moose was spot on when he noted the lower mag to start at 100mm.  I had the CU 
diopter on but that was a test shot.  I very much like a kiss of fill flash to 
make them pop
as they have structural color that responds well to that.  I quick crop showed 
it didn't have the biting resolution throughout I like.  I may send Moose the 
raw file if he has the time.
My T32 failed on this one as the lowest setting blew it out--shouldn't have 
done so  with the ND filter on the T32 as it has time to send the quench 
signal, but the thyristor misread the lighting.  I need to get something that 
does TTL and a LED for other  situations.
Another shot  at higher mag would have been as prefect as this one could get given 
where he landed.  This combo (PL 100-400 & T132 CU diopter)  goes easily goes 
1:1 but it takes a bit of time to do so and the autofocus can be tricksy.

Flutterby is larger than the sensor, so 1:1 not ideal. 😉  300-400 mm , sans 
C-U, would have been just right here, no?

Too late to try again

This year.

Next Year Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
