dougsmit mentioned a 150mm previously - Here's an example from that lens:





--> the difference in this case is one can be further out and not scaring the critter to fly away - Lighting is also slighly easier...

NHL,

Awesome macro pictures. Can you share the camera andlens settings for these pictures? And how far were you from the subjects? Thanks!

1. Butterfly: 300mm f/8 @ 1/1000s from about 10-12ft
2. Dragonfly: 150mm f/8 @ 1/750s (no flash) at about 3ft

-> You can 'shave' this guy's hairs with the 150mm f/16 @ 1/60s (with flash) about 2-3ft away: :lol: :-) :G
