Connie loaned me her excellent 105VR at the botanical garden. I had never shot macro before and was totally amazed. Except for completely blowing the reds most of the time, I had a lot of fun:eek:. Thanks again, Connie!

Nice series Mason!
Thank you Larry.

WOW! You certainly nailed those butterflies! Beautifully done, Mason!
Thanks Dianne...you know first hand that there are a ton of butterflys to choose from.

Wow! Great series...

Thank you Leigh. That is a very kind offer.

Incredible, stunning image of the turtle head BTW
Thanks Dude. I think that is one of my favorites. I really can't take much credit...I was just doing what you, Tim, Mike, and Sam were doing.

Excellent shots, Mason. Are you sure these are your first macros?
Pretty sure. Two years ago I borrowed extension tubes from Flew and used them on the 70-200. I think that is as close as I have come. When Allison bought her D50 she got a little 28-90 macro, but I never tried macro with it. I think this might be kind of addicting.

Very nice
Your reds look preetty good here.
Thanks Gale. For some reason I was blowing them pretty bad, but I didn't process many of those. Oh well, it will be another year before I shoot macro (or birds), so I'm not going to sweat it :smile:

Awesome , Love how the light shine in the turtle eye
Thank you...if you had told me going into the weekend that a turtle head would be one of my favorites...I would have thought you were crazy.

MAcro is so fascinating and you have done well with these.
Thank you Dave. Every year at the get-together I learn something new or am exposed to a new facet of photography.

Dig that turtle...
Thanks Eric. He posed for a ton of pictures and I was lucky enough to get a decent shot.
