    This little guy is pretty hard to spot when he's lying in the water. Pretty good camouflage I think and a cute little green frog.

    I had by mistake set the cam to ISO 1600 but I don't think the noise spoils the image.

    original.

    Nice little fella!

    Cheers

    Thanks Dave. I used the 300 mm f.4 with extension tubes.

    Neat shot. Yes nature sure provides great cover for all its creatures:>))

    What extention tube did you use. (brand)
    (and how to use)
    I have a 300 f4
    Very interested....
     
  7. Man now I need to try my 300mm with my Kenko's. Excellent shot!

    Thanks Gale. I have the Kenko tubes. They work like a charm with my 300mm. I think for this shot I used the 36 mm. The biggest of the three. I just connect the tube(s) to the camera and then put on the lens. I don't loose the autofocus but it feels slower. You cannot focus for infinity or far away objects.

    Thanks. I love my 300mm and I get to use it more with the extension tubes. It also gives me a longer working distance compared to my 105 mm macro lens.
     
  10. Neat shots, Torben. Effective camo indeed. I agree, you can have a lot of fun with extension tubes, and, judging by the shots I've seen with the combination, seem to work very well with the 300/4.

    Thanks Dave. I'm pretty happy with my 300/4. It's sharp, reasonable fast and still light enough to carry around and it works great with TC's and extension rings.

    Darn... now I have to get extension tubes too?!?
    Good ones Torben -- I like these a lot better than Dave's fuscia frog :biggrin::biggrin:( several weeks ago).
     
  15. Torben, you're the man!
    These are great!

    Thanks Bob. Extension tubes lust is a lot cheaper than lens lust. :biggrin:
    I don't recall Dave's frog so I must look back into the threads.
