Snack Time

New lens alert--I got a new toy today; a Nikon 85mm f/3.5 micro (macro) lens and I went right outside after work to try it. It's going to be a challenge to focus on bugs without a tripod, but I was really happy with this first attempt. I put out an apple to "attract" some friends and I snapped a shot of this bee. I'm happy so far with my purchase. I want to get some close up shots of bugs, flowers, and other things outside. I don't need them to be true macro shots, but I like seeing the details close up. I debated for a long time about which lens to get. I really wanted the 105mm one, but it's a lot more $$$ and much heavier so I got this one instead.
Congratulations on your new lense. Macro is my dream as well.
Looking forward to your beautiful photos :)
P.S. It turns out wasps have hairy backs :D
