    More of a 'mid'-cro image, shot with the 180 f/2.8 ED lens at it's minimum focus at f/4 I think:

    Like in this photo, I have taken to manually focusing this lens to reduce the searching time, especially now that I have a Kenko 1.5X teleconverter for it (that I paid way too much for while on vacation) it's really a s, l, o, w focuser.
     
  2. WOW, Cool shot Chris!!! :D :D :D

    Thanks Dawg, fortunately those big, black bees are slow themselves, or I never coulda caught him.
     
  4. Oh yes, those carpenter bees are the jumbos of the bee world, often mistaken for bumble-bees.
    Nice image, but I'm afraid your sensor needs a bit of cleaning :)
    cheers
