Not sure if these actually called sweat bees but that was what my grandfather always called them. Shots taken about 1 hour after rain had stopped

Frank like the 60 micro very well only down side is working distance. Need to get very close to subject for micro shot. Need to get a mono-pod to get steady shots or be lucky when set up with tripod and bee's show up. Friend had a Nikon 105 mm at work and let me try it out that gave a better working distance but camera shake was more pronounced this was under fluorescent lights and could have been one of my more unsteady days. Also its a good all round lens (nice substitute for the 18-70 mm kit lens) gives sharp images.
Only on the third month of having the D70 and lens so this is rookie opinion.

Neil,

It may be a rookie opinion, but the 60 macro is what Ron Reznick shot with all day at the local botanical gardens when he was here for a class last year. Must be a pretty good lens if Ron has it in his bag. 8)
