    I like the technical stuff, but that is just a stunning image.

    Great shot.

    Thanks, Marc, but as you see, it cannot be any way else, as I have a great camera. [Tongue in the cheek]

    Okay so I cheated and used the 200-500 for this one but I was birding when it came and sat right in front of me and with a kill it returned to the same branch leaf.

    Francois - that is my preferred manner for close ups. The 200-500 works well for this. I cant stand a macro lens. Another lens that works well - is the 300 f2.8 on a DX body.

    Not really macro - but close up.

    Think this should rather go on the nature one but was shot with a macro lens, i was really scared eish so missing focus and settins etc, little lady could strike at any time it felt to me but she was quite happy posing.

    Well done. Next time get your long lens out I am pretty respectful of those.

    Janee, I shoot those with a 500, not a macro.

    The light on the last one is beautiful, but it could have done with a bit more DOF for me. Focus is pretty good though. What aperture were you shooting at?

    Hi Peter, so this lady was lying under a white umbrella to keep her shaded and calm, and crazy mate was in there with the 40mm macro and the flash that looks like medusa.

    I was on the old 105mm f2.8 nikon macro at f3 1/1000 iso 250. I kept the speed up because it would blur with her breathing if I go at a lower speed so stayed at low f as well to keep the light. But it needs a larger f I agree and you will see the pictures name too hahaha
