Thanks, all. Jim, these were taken with my Sigma 105 macro with a kenko 2X teleconverter.

Don't mean to bother you Bob, but exactly which 2x kenko? I went to look one up and found several.

Thanks, Don. Trigger, it's the C-AF 2X teleplus MC7 DG. Hope that helps. I have auto focus about 60% of the time and often choose to manual focus.

Thank you. My son loves macro work, and I believe this is a great combo. At least it is looking at this thread. Thanks again

Bob,

Great photos. Insects have the indisputable favour of having their hard, stabilizing parts on the outside and their soft parts shielded, whereas humans... are more vulnerable
