I'm not much into closeups but I tried out my new D7000 today.It was really windy.I shot at iso640 f9 1/500 200mm using a monopod.This is a fair sised crop from the original.I was pleased with this one,the other 100 or so not so much.I don't know whats going on in the lower right corner.

Howard, Macro or Close-up photography and strong winds don't go well together. Freezing motion isn't necessarily a problem, but keeping the subject in focus is next to impossible. Using a reflector to help block the wind can help some. Also you can try shooting a burst of shots with the hope that one might be in focus. Tom
