Subject: [Leica] IMG: Olympus/Leica Butterfly Kit

I've received a number of comments on my recent insect photos, hence 
decided to share the changes I have made that made them possible.? At 
89, I'm not as stable on my feet as I once was, and my eyesight is 
undergoing some changes.? To compensate, I recently acquired a used 
Olympus ZD 50-200 Autofocus lens and a used Leica-R shoulder stock 
(thanks, Doug Herr).? Currently, these are paired with my original 
Olympus E-510 4/3 camera body.? I have been quite pleased with the 
results I have managed to achieve with this setup.? Here are a couple of 
photos of the kit.

Though quite awkward in appearance, it works quite nicely.
