I really wanted to know what it would do, but it won't be an everday setup.

I want to do dragonflies it flight, but I'd guess shutter count will skyrocket, and keepers will be a tiny fraction of that shutter count.

But the keepers will be so worth it. I have had zero keepers trying dragonflies in flight so far but have yet to see one this year so maybe I'll have better luck. Were you going to use the ec-20 or just the 300 alone? I'd think either the lens alone or with the ex-25 would be better just so you can get faster shutter speeds but maybe you can't get close enough that way. Regardless I'm sure we're all looking forward to the shots you get.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Back problems are certainly no fun.

Default I use a 300mm macro.

A swallowtail at dusk. Minolta 100-300 APO at 300mm. I feel as you do as I am 76 and at the point where getting down is no problem but can't same the same for getting up.

Thanks all for the concerns for the back.

I had ice on it much of Sunday and it felt much better Monday. Late Monday I went to the chiropractor and told him where it hurt. "Oh, here??" and he pressed his index finger with about the force to make a door bell ring. It just about put me to my knees.

Anyway, he did an agressive adjustment. I'm back in the game now.

Anyway, I do resemble the harder to get up thing. More and more each day it seems. So far it hasn't kept me from crawling around taking pictures of bugs.
