Glad to see you're getting along with your Sigma 150mm Bill, my friend used to have one which he used with his D40 and I always thought it was a great combo.

You got some good images here, the one that really stands out is obviously the dragonfly (or whatever it is) however I do like the delicate shapes and subtle tones in image 4 as well.

One last thing, next time do you think you could put spaces in between your images? It just makes them nicer to view.

Robert thanks. I added the spaces.

My yard doesn't have much in the way of flowers at this time and for some reason other than mosquitoes, there really aren't any interesting bugs flying around. The dragonfly was a small one who happened to hang around on that blade of grass for a while so I could get off some shots. He was small enough that focusing on his eye was a real task.

Because I'm bored I installed my Sigma 2x APO EX tele and took these at 300mm. In the hands and to the eyes of a more capable photographer there might be a difference but for me I think the lens performs well with the 2x Tele.

Btw, I have no idea what this bug is (I think it's the same species in both shots)

Bill,
Yes it has rained a lot in NH this Summer! Of course there is a very large crop of bugs to shoot. Try the brush and weeds along some of the rural roads for more variety of bugs.
good luck with the Sigma, just got the 150-500mm Sig.
