    That orange colour is tremendous Geoff nice one. Bee's pretty smart too. I don't think you need a macro lens .

    Thanks Phil - tricky one about the Macro lens though
    The Tamron 28 - 200 gets in quite close if I use the telephoto end more
    still sometimes not as close as I would like, and it is usually pretty sharp
    provided I make sure it isn't wide open - F8 is pretty decent and on up to
    F16.
    However - the macro lenses I could afford are either 90mm or 105mm
    and I am concerned I would need to be a bit closer to my subject -
    which is fine with flora - but less clever with the likes of Butterflys
    I have trouble like that with my 16 - 85VR - even at 85mm I am a lot too
    close to the subject and tend to frighten some insects off.
    So for now - the 28 - 200 is my best compromise.

    Re-visited those Marigolds in an attempt to get a natural sort of
    perspective on them at the same time as a degree of isolation...
    This shot shows the two different shades we got.

    Geoff I'm in the same situation. I use my 70-300 lens in the same way for butterflies etc It's quite good if its got good light & there is less chance of them being fightened off.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture

    Thanks Geoff.
    This shot I take in the evening,. Therefore it was almost impossible to change shot angle.
    And lens Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM not absolutely approaches for such shooting. The minimum distance of 1.5 m imposes serious restrictions on a composition

    Guys - I have a Sigma 70 - 300 APO - that claims to be macro -
    but only at the telephoto end. In this case the lens is hard to use as
    you need to be a long way from the subject - and it's all over the place
    unless you use a tripod. The 28 - 200 is great as it gets it's closest throughout
    the range and I find around 135 - 200 is best for close ups with it.
    I am somehow concerned that the Tamron 90F2.8 macro I am considering will need to get
    too close for insects - I have toyed with the idea of adding close up rings to the 28 - 200.......
    Meanwhile - keep posting your great flower closeups here.
    We are all learning from one another!

    Geoff I managed to grab a reasonable butterfly with my 70-300 the other day. Focus was a bit hit and miss but a bit of sharpening and slight crop in picasa improved it quite a bit. I posted it in the insect thread.
