A closer look to these wonderful snoots

 

Seahorn snoot can be used on land as well, not only for photography but also as a signal horn, provided you can buzz your lips through the small tube! ( similar to a trumpet/horn player ) If you happened to be a brass player, a standard trombone or euphonium mouthpiece fits into the super macro attachment! It's perfectly tuned to the natural harmonics of "C"!

Patience, creativity and repetitive trials with the Seahorn snoot may result in those award winning, killer shots that you're looking for!
