Thanks for viewing my thread and the comments. The "popping" eyes only strikes me when I viewed the shot on the PC monitor :shock: . It was not so apparent when I first took the shot of the owl on its perch.

The shot was taken with the drebel and the Sigma 28-200 Compact Macro lense.

Best Regards!

Fantastic shots. Very ... crisp I want to say. Heh - that's probably not the right word to use, but they're very sharp. I love 'em!

Question about the Macro lens - I am just learning the whole SLR world, and I was under the impression that a macro lens was only used for close up stuff? ...or can it be used as a "regular" telephoto as well?

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the nice compliments and I think crisp can be used to describe the colors in these shots but of course I am biased in this case . Anyway, I glad you like 'em.

About the Macro lens, the 28-200 Compact Macro is actually a telephoto zoom lens with macro(close-up) capability built-in. This lens can be used to take macro shots (max mag 1:3.8 at 200mm) at a minimum working distance of 1.6 feet (~20 inches).

Hope this helps :lol:

Best Regards!

Thanks, William. I guess as long as the subject doesn't have pointy sharp bits it pays to get as close as you can!
