Switched to the 40-150 +1.4tc for the last couple.
Here's a few more.







Plan to give the extension tubes a go with this lens if the sun comes out later.

Just a common or garden fly, but such fun to be out again playing with a new lens!

Actually, an Eristalis hoverfly. Nice image.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Thanks Harold - I do have a book on insect identification somewhere but they all look the same....!

I'm really liking this new lens, but I'm not so sure that it's quite as sharp as my kit lens. I've spent the afternoon chasing flutterbyes round the garden and having a whole load of fun!

That hourglass shape gives you Eristalis. It's a bit difficult to make out on the commonest species.

Rhinoceros Beetle

This is supposed to be a common British beetle but I have never knowingly seen one before. On a recent sunny day it landed on my wife's shirt and then wandered onto her arm. (Images shown in reverse sequence and all have been cropped).

aka Horned stag beetle or Least stag beetle, the “horn” makes it a male.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, hand-held.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I did the big butterfly count today as prompted by Sir David Attenborough on BBC breakfast this morning. Here are a few of the ones I got in the 15 minute count. Not exactly macro but close, all shot with the 40-150 plus 1.4tc.

Speckled wood.


Peacock.


Green-veined white

Hopefully I got the ID correct.
