Hi Bob, great, great, great shot!!!!

Is this just the 100mm macro or is there anything else with it? How much have you cropped?

I still want to get into macro so sorry for the questions.

Thanks for posting this,

Mark

Thanks, guys. Mark, this is shot with the Macro lens alone and cropped down to about 75% of the original.

Cool so not much cropping needed. Next question, how far from the wasp was the end of the lens?

Mark, this is a large wasp - nearly one inch long! I think my favorite close-ups were of this same wasp (although not as close as Bob's excellent shot):

Well done, Bob!

Thank you, all. Mark, this guy was probably about 4 or 5 inches from the end of the lens.
