    Thanks Paul. It was my first try at bugs and an experiment using the 300 f4 + 12mm extension tube + 1.4TC.

    I learned two things from this. This combo works, and its hard to manual focus on a moving bee. :wink:

    Very nice and love the colors. Like the bee down in the flower doing his work.

    First time was a charm.

    Good job Charles. So how do you like this combo (300 f4 + extension tube)?
     
  5. Great job Charles, that second one is definitely up close and personable. LOL!!

    Frank,

    I had to modify my TC and 12mm tube for this but I think it works well. The auto focus would never lock on so I went to manual. Just as well with the focus being so tight.

    Keith,

    I was about 3 feet away for that shot. A nice safe distance. :)
