This is seriously turning more and more into a photoblog, which I don't mind. However, I know the current macro craze I'm in is probably getting tiresome.
I'm still trying to get a macro of the hibiscus while keeping the entire flower sharp. And not have the red become too overpowering as well !
So, this is the last macro post for a while. I'll turn to posting these photos in forums instead for some comments and critiques, which I appreciate from my small readership ! (Pelf & Angel -> note there's not going to be any inferences to imaginary readers as well !)
As usual, the haunt is my humble garden, and the ocassion - simply a beautiful morning.
The Tamron 90mm is turning into a really great investment !
This fly is about 5mm. But I can't get a good picture closer ... although it didn't move away when I approached, but the built in flash casts a shadow when the Tamron lens is fully extended at 1:1
Now, the next thing I'll need is probably an external speedlight ... perhaps the SB 600 ?
This was taken handheld, without any flash. I can't believe it turned out so well. The bee's about 5mm big.
Or maybe I need some closeup filters instead ?
