I recently bought a Canon 100mm f2.8L macro lens and have been dying to try it out. The following are a few of the ones I took in Yuye’s garden – can you believe there’s no other flowers? I was so excited the day I got the lens that I ran outside to find bugs and flowers but, there were none! I couldn’t even find ants! I had to settle for this flower (which really belongs to the next door neighbours) and a few days later, I found bees near one of his trees. Let me know what you all think and maybe give me some pointers. 🙂
These bees photos were really cropped because I found the lens was still too far away, if I tried to get any closer, they’d get scared and leave. I think I’ll need to buy an extension tube if I want to continue along this line of photography. For flowers I think the current 100mm lens is enough though.
So, do any of you have links to your own macro photos or know of any good photos you wouldn’t mind sharing? Send me a link because I’m a very eager learner right now. 🙂 Give me suggestions as well, that would help heaps!
