Very sharp images!
Tks for sharing, actually I am looking at getting a 105 for FX and a TC was suggested,
Looks like your not really loosing any IQ in doing so!
Regards,
Gary

Thanks Gary. You can't go wrong with the 105,it and most macro lenses that I know of are excellent.

Great images. The mantis shot is my favorite. It would look even more awesome with the background more out of focus in my opinion.

Visit my Nikonians gallery.

Thanks Jorn. You're right about the background. I was trying to keep the whole mantis sharp as it was at an angle to me with the head further away than its rear. F/18 almost got me there but it did produce a distracting background. I could mask the mantis and blur the background.

Thanks Ian. Your summer is approaching so you should have all kinds of bugs running around soon,if not already. Ours will soon be gone.
