Thanks I am having fun...I had the shutter speed that high for the bees that are hard to catch for more than a millisecond - they are that flighty. With this macro set up I've found that for wee moving things a higher SS improved my keeper rate significantlyWonderful images! You seem to be having a lot of fun using your new macro lens.
I'm curious to learn if you really needed the 1/2500 shutter speed for these two subjects.
I'm good with what it is.. Just a shot I was using to try getting use to the new lens. I can see where I need to adjust technique. Just need some more practiceIf you feel you missed the focus a tad, that kind of photo for me would be a strong candidate for running it through Topaz Sharpen AI. It's likely that it can solve your focus issues on photos such as these.
