Default Another macro try with 1020mm

This is my second attempt with a APS-C (1.5) camera, a 500mm lens and a 1.4 Tele Converter.

This time I used a tripod and 2 second MLU. I also shot at the maximum aperture. No cropping.

When the wind would stop blowing I could get some shots in focus. It's always windy in the desert.

I have a excellent 100 macro lens but I thought I would try something a little different. It's a challenge. I really like the bokeh with this setup.

Here's a few

Thanks for looking

Great results, and more than proving that any lens can 'outperform' itself if you know what you're doing.
