    Glenn for the butterfly images are you using a Macro lens or a standard telephoto? I have been playing around with using the telephoto on the close up setting of my wife's camera hoping to get that effect. (Also I would like to save the 5-600 and not buy a macro lens with a little one around...too much glass)

    Spuhjon:

    I used a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens with a 12mm extension tube behind it to decrease its minimum focusing distance.

    A set of extension tubes (mine are from Promaster) are a comparatively inexpensive way to turn any lens into a macro. Check your local camera shop or try any number of online camera supply sites and you should be able to find a set for around $175. Mount one between the camera body and your lens and you can get right up on top of any subject to fill the frame and still be able to focus.

    Just don't do that with poisonous snakes!

    Also, those images are crops of the full frame.

    Are you talkin' to me?

    I don't have a macro lens. I like the way my extension tubes work. The 50mm lens is tack-sharp at f8 with extension tubes behind it, and so is the 24-70mm. No need to spend that kinda dough.

    I wouldn't mind having a reversing ring like Puckmonkey talked about during the photo challenges, though.

    Haven't posted in a while. Been rather busy. I found a little hornets nest under an eve of my house, found it slightly ironic that I lit it with an Alien Bee strobe Not at all fantastic, but I have been so remiss in this thread that I thought I should post something.

    And yes, I need a set of tubes

    Speaking of tubes... that's a hell of a scary shot. Nice one.

    BTW, a good macro lens doesn't have to cost a fortune. Tamron 90mm/2.8 is superb, and you can find it in great used condition for around $300 or less. The "plastic fantastic" can be had for I think around $150 new, or definitely around $100 used.
