That's a sweet lens that often doesn't get much attention, IMO. The FD 100/2.8 was one of my favorites when I was shooting a lot of Canon FD stuff. Er . . . I'm assuming it's an FD 100/2.8 you used, that is.

You're right, Michael. The Canon's 2.8/100 are a great serie.
In my case, this is the EF 2.8/100 Macro. (sorry not MF... Embarassed )

Long-Tailed Field Mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) or Wood Mouse.

Canon 400D, Pentacon MC 50mm F/1.8 with I think Panagor auto macro converter and ring flash - ~F/8, 1/200s. Image cropped ~50% or so.

Our pet cat has a nasty habit of catching these critters and bringing them indoors. The cat to my knowledge has never caused them any physical harm, she just likes playing with them. When she gets bored, they are often left running around the house, usual taking shelter in the kitchen under various cupboards and kitchen appliances. I have become quite skilful in catching/trapping them and then releasing them back to the wild where they belong. This particular mouse trapped himself in kitchen waste bin. Seemingly, not in too much distress at all the attention, I could not resist the photo opportunity before releasing it.
