Nice diffuser! Might try similar using an ovaltine tub. Perhaps rather than putting the flash in at the end, cut it at an angle, so the diffuser slopes down towards the lens?

Yes, I see what you mean. I might try that.

Thee most popular item to repurpose as a macro flash diffuser seems to be a Pringles can.

Pingu & I went hunting Odonata today. Bloody hard to capture, they won't keep still!

Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

A common red soldier beetle. Loads of them about yesterday evening. This was one of the few which wasn't engaged in amorous activities.

One of two rather splendid speckled bush-crickets in my neighbour's front garden this afternoon.

A hovering hover-fly this morning. Lit by hand-held flash on the left.
