I made the images of these insects during my first outing with my new Sigma 120-300/2.8 lens (previous version). I got the lens primarily for birding, but I wasn't finding many interesting birds. The close focusing ability allowed me to get in tight enough for these shots. All three were taken with the 120-300 and Sigma 1.4X TC on a D800e and then cropped for presentation. All three images are at 420mm. ISO 400 and f/5.6.
