Yeah, here's some more pix. This time from the insect world.

20D, 100-400L, ISO 400

Note: This guy is wrapping up his lunch
400mm, f/8, 1/320sec


These guys are pretty tight crops as they are only 3/4" to 1" big.

400mm, f/8, 1/1000sec


380mm, f/7.1, 1/1000sec

Nice shots, woody - the centre butterfly really came out well. I'm quite impressed with the 100-400 doing macro stuff, I've also used an extension tube with it, with quite improved results.

Thanks for sharing !!

Thanks jake. The spider was quite large. It filled the frame vertically and I just clipped the
sides as it added little to the photo. Wish I could have got the web better. However, to get
the right light angle for that I would have been hip deep in swamp gak.

I have been debating back and forth over getting tubes to get a little closer or a dedicated
macro. A macro would be good for the creepy, crawlies, but the distance that the 400mm
helps to keep from scaring off the flying bugs. Not sure what I want to do.

Hi, I like your picture of the butterfly in #2. Is it a gray hairstreak?.....Is that a bee in the corner? The second butterfly #3 looks like a mallow scrub hairstreak. I have't seen any of those this year. Thanks for sharing. bentleysmom

Great macros, woodmeister, and with the 100-400, yet. That's definitely versatility plus
