The Box Bug That Laid A Clutch Of Golden Eggs

I posted a pic of some newly hatched Box Bug nymphs on 22nd June.

I've found another clutch of eggs and am hoping to capture them hatching. I got my Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens out today to try to get an extreme close up. It's a weird piece of kit and ideally should be used with a tripod and a focussing rail, both of which I have though didn't use. Because the plane of focus is so thin most people take a stack of shots and combine them in processing. I'm a bit rubbish and impatient with it so took a single shot using just my ring flash.
