The strange thing about this shot is, it was taken with my worst lens. the infamous Phoenix 100-500mm! I think this is the best shot I have ever gotten with this lens.:-)

I can see why you are so impressed with these two - they are very nice, no matter what lens took them!

Good shooting



Almost worthy of a macro title!!


Although it would probablybe the first 500mm macro lens.

Really, really cool pics. I'm no expert on mushrooms and toadstools, but I don't think I've ever seen that type of fungus growing here in new England. I assume it needs a warmer climate.

Nice shots. Particularly when they are not located in your lens. Seems sharp for a long range zoom.

Thank you all for your kind comments!
I just got possession of an older Tamron 90mm macro lens, I'm going to put every other lens I have on eBay!:G I'll post a couple pix as soon as I can.

Every lens is good for something! The softness in this image goes well with the mood established by the lighting. Well done!.
