Since I have the 60mm macro ... I am learning to use it (without very good success so far).

So, a mix of shots:

Spring Flowers (It is about time...) /60mm Macro


60mm Macro:


Back to Rokinon Fisheye (and street photography):


60mm Macro (and Tintii post-processing):


60mm:

I really like the water strider shot. I bet that was tough.

Hi James,

Maybe ... I am still trying to get closer to the action (unless I am asking too much for this lens).

No, I think closer is very possible. Give yourself some more time and warmer weather to where you have more subjects to capture.

Thanks Greg! You provided a good set of shots And yes, I am still working on it

Sammy, I went to Wagner Bog (a local "preserved" Natural Area) basically just to get shots of the "water strider" (which we call "patineuse" in French ... meaning "skaters") since they were not there last time I went there.

Lucky me, there is a boardwalk just over a portion of the bog ... so I just need to lie down on it and shoot

I love the way they can stand on water without sinking

I'm been quite quick enough with my camera skills to be able to "capture" one.

You might find it easier using the 60 if you do not have to suspend yourself above your subject. That said, kudos on the water strider
Really like the last shot of that not-so-evergreen -- great structure that you have nicely captured
