Default bug huntin' with the cheap lens

CHEAP but a really good lens is the Oly ZD 35mm MACRO. We've all said this before but every time I use it I think of .........$160 refurbished from Cameta! CHEAP!!!!

The images aren't cheap though. It has been a whole week since I've been out and today just seemed like a perfect time to go fall bug hunting at the neighborhood park a couple blocks away.

Here're some of what I made today wondering through the tall stuff that grows around the park perimeter.

Thumbs up

Bob: I keep running out of superlatives to describe your insect shots. You even make ugly creepy crawlers look good. Top notch photography!

Here's a superlative for you; Yowsa! Or is that an exclamation of surprise? Either way, top notch.

......thanks y'all for the very much appreciated remarks.

I am bettering my skills and I feel it when out looking for critters to photograph, it is fun to 'see' the end when seeing the comp in the EVF.
