Peach Iris with super-tele macro


DW Brewer

A little over a year ago, a fellow named Jim Neiger pioneered using super-telephoto lens for macro work in a stunning series of images posted on I've been waiting for the right circumstances to try this, although my standard butterfly and dragonfly set-up is with a 400mm lens+ringlight. Here goes. The late spring freeze has presented a dearth of flowerig subjects, but finally the iris bloomed. These are peach colored iris from a start given to me by friends about a dozen years ago. This made a beautiful 11x14 print.
D2Hs + 120-300 at 300mm + 2XTC, ISO 400

Very nice. I occasionally use my 300F4 for floral images. Love the effect. Scott Schexnadyre uses his for butterflies and a few florals too.
