I watched this fella grow outside my office window for several weeks in late summer.

Thanks Jaki - I used the Canon 100mm 2.8 macro lens.

I have a Sigma 105mm. But for some reason, I have not succeeded in bringing that entire subject in focus. Might you have a lesson here for me. Regard. Jaki

My suggestion is to always use a tripod for macro work. To get more of your critter in focus, you'll need to use an f/stop of at least 16 and quite possibly greater.

The closer you get to your subject with your 105mm, the more shallow your depth of field will be. To increase your dof, you'll need to go with higher f/stop settings, which will cause the need for longer shutter speeds.

Hope that helps! :-)

It's called a "hurry up and eat more flies" lense!:lol: Sorry Jaki. Just clowning around. Wonderful close up. Can't wait for spring here to practice some of my own...
