Bought a new Tamrom 90mm macro lens last week. Lens is as sharp as others say. This is almost a 100% crop. Would have liked to get closer, but would have needed a ladder to do so........cheers....Don.

Thanks Roy. Yes, it would have been nice to get more dof, but I took these hand held, and needed the shutter speed to make up for my wavering. Got to start using a tripod for this macro stuff.......cheers.....Don.

I like the frog, and I know what you mean about the DOF and tripods. It's not easy to get the DOF and a fast enough shutter speed to get all you want. I'm impressed that you got as good of a shot as you did - my luck would be that the moth would leave right when I push the shutter, and all I'd get is a blur!
