Macro's - pic heavy

Postby Kylie » Mon Apr 19, 2010 4:09 am

Hi All, I've been playing with my new Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro for a few days now and I thought it was about time I got around to posting some photos.

For the record, I LOVE this lens. It was reasonably priced and it's just plain awesome. I was a bit nervous at first because it's the first time I've bought outside the Nikkor family, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful shots! And WOW! The color on the bugs. I wish I could find some colorful bugs. All I seem to run into are the eight legged creatures that I run from :lol:
