    Photos The Canal-side Macros

    Apart from the wonderful darter dragonfly (see "The Darter" upload) - my short walk down the to the canal and back found me getting a host of different insects/bugs. Some I'm not sure of what they are though.

    The Cinnabar caterpillar:

    And 3 bugs in one - and I only know the middle one is a picture fly, the other two - I've no idea...

    Fantastic again. How do you get them to stay still? Or do you just dive in there and capture them before they fly/hop away?

    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    With bugs you just hope they are still there and in focus when you press the shutter. There are plenty of blurred shots as well, caused by movement of the plants in the wind.

    I agree. I wondered before you got it how you could improve on the excellent shots you were getting on the last one but the new glass is really showing it's worth.. wish the same could be said of my efforts LOL

    Goes to prove despite me having the same lens, it's the guy behind it that makes the difference ..
