Got me a new toy. Tamron 180mm f3.5 macro. Had to build myself a little bracket for my flash but works quite well. Also have a Lumiquest mini-softbox on the way. Here's my first few shots. Nothing special I know, but there aren't many bugs out yet. A random weed Another Weed Closeup of some moss About 1/4" long spider You don't see much talk about this lens, but so far it seems like a very sharp lens, albeit incredibly thin DOF with 1:1 and 180mm. Bokeh is very, very creamy. Should be fun at the zoo and butterfly house trip we are planning for next weekend.
