Default New Macro

My first few attempts with the Tamron 90mm Macro lens. Weather has not been favourable , windy and cloudy. Shots are hand held. The lens so far is amazing, great clarity and colour.

Great shots. My macro lens is my favorite lens at the moment.

Great shots Steve! You nailed the cat's eye in the first one. And I love the macro flowers you've caught, totally agree - great colour. You wouldn't have wanted to be out yesterday (esp evening) with the weather we've been having!

Great picks. Look at the cat's eyes!
Windy may be bad, but cloudy is good. Even light.

Too true about the weather our beaches will probably have no sand left with all the rough seas at the moment. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Ordo and Hawgwild, lenses aren't cheap but the Tamron is certainly excellent value for money. Thanks for looking.
