Many thanks Goldwinger for your kind comments and glad that you like the shots.

I'm sure with some more practice and apply better technique, I can improve, but I'm happy how the lens performs.

As it's so important to keep camera (& subject) very still while doing 1:1 size macros, I use my tripod for most of these type of shots.

It makes me wonder how you can get so low into the grass with the tripod, I gues you may be able to hang the camera upside down under the center column. This lens looks to be a cracker, looking forward to seeing more pics from this new adventure into the miniature world.

Bonjour Mark

I appreciate your comments - and I also like photo 2 for the reasons you wrote - its feeling of a candid shot and the caterpillar heading directly to the camera / photographer.

Actually, it wasn't grass, it was a plant in my back garden. So while I was low, the plant was on a small bank (near my carport) - so maybe the plant base is already 20 to 30 cm off the ground, then the plant is maybe 30 cm tall, so that helps too.

In due course I'll share some more macros. Again, thanks for your feedback.

Paul
