Pete - which lens did you use for the butterfly and dragonfly pics?

Pete said...

ah right all Pics up to and including the Kingfisher were a Tamron 200-500

not ideal for flutters

up to and including the pink flower a Nikon 70-300VR (not sure about the butterfly immediately after)

and the rest a Sigma 150 Macro

giving all my lenses a try out.

The Tamron is not ideal, the focus is too distant. The 70-300 is fine for dragons and flutters but not for smaller insects.

The Sigma is superb for small insects and IF you can get close enough Dragons and flutters.
