This set of pictures should be studied with at least a 3rd glass of Bordeaux and the Beatles, “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band”!

How does one invite the butterfly and then get the cat to stare on command! I am flummoxed and without a few tokes cannot compete!

Perfect! Do you think it would cover the Fuji GFX?

What does it take to mount?

I discovered someone using it with a Fuji GXR, but these have fixed lenses! I guess they used the lensless module with the Leica mount!

Very creative!
