Macro with Bigma

We had a wonderful day out at Wicken Fen not many birds aroun to photograph but a lot of Dragonflies, this is a superb place but you can't get close up to use a macro lens, so I gave it a try with the E1 and Bigma. The only PP carried out has been a small amount of croping on some images and noise reduction using Neat Image.

Four Spot Chaser's









Damselflies Mating



Bee on Iris



I hope you enjoy the images, please leave comments.

Re: Macro with Bigma

Well done Barrie. This is a good demonstration of the clarity and versatility of this lens. It's a popular lens across all camera manufacturer platforms and no wonder.
