    Default Some willow flowers (plus bee) from today

    Used a Canon 40D, with a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, at a distance of approximately 10 inches. It was not the best lighting, so I moved the camera around so the background would be as dark as possible. The ISO was from 100 to 160, with the camera set to aperture priority (Av). The shutter speeds were from 250 to 800 depending on the location of the camera, and the lens apertures from f/3.5 to perhaps 4.5.

    Always use lens on manual focus for this sort of shot, and this bee happened to land on the willow. I did some fast focusing and managed to get a few good ones:

    Default Wow

    The first and the last do it for me. They are all awesome but I like those two the most. Make my eyes water with allergy problems. Kidding. They are very nice. Congrats.

    There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

    I would sneeze all day long, but I am taking allergy medication to control that. The next offender is birch, which is even nastier than willow

    Default Some from this afternoon (having fun with the 100mm macro lens)

    Willow, a different view


    New birch growth. Was getting dark, and had to use 320 ISO for this one

    Nice work man. Beautiful macros.

    Yes, 100mm Macro ...a little wind and a little bit impatient on my part.

    It's a real nice little lens, and sharp. The more I use it, the more I like it.
