I took my new macro lens, a Sigma 105mm f/2.8, out this morning, to give it a try. Not all of the images are with that lens, I also used my Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3. I have a lot of learning to do with the new macro lens, since I'm so used to using a zoom. My biggest adversary today, besides myself, was the wind.

Some great documentation about a day well spent! Really shows the diversity of your area . Pearl Crescents are my favorite small butterfly.
 
Very nice set, Jeff, good variety. Hard to pick a fav. but the two that grab me the most are the fiery skipper and the crescent butterflies.
 
Great set, Jeff. That was certainly a productive day. Picking a favorite is tough, so I’ll just say well done! Enjoy that new lens.

Thanks! I was pleased to catch the top one with the sun hitting the wing in such a way that it reminded me of a stained glass window. It took quite a few shots to get a good one, because the wind kept on blowing the flower around.
Excellent set Jeff, looks like that new macro lens was a great purchace!
Thank you! Yes, I think so. I now carry three lenses with me, one on the camera, and two in a small bag, the f/2.8 105mm macro, the f/3.5-6.3 18-400mm, and the f/2.8 17-50mm lens.

Thanks! I'm particular to the crescents in this one due to the stained glass look the sun created.
Great set, Jeff. That was certainly a productive day. Picking a favorite is tough, so I’ll just say well done! Enjoy that new lens.
Thank you! The day was cut short by an unforcasted thunderstorm, otherwise I would have been out for a few more hours. :)
 
You had one good day in the field! Those are some mighty fine shots.
