Most Excellent! That first one is a real stunner! All of them are superb! You are really giving that lens a workout, and it is paying off nicely.

Don't see so much of old Norm lately.....putting him to shame? Not that he isn't plenty good, he is, but you might want to back off the focus a little, miss the target some, or foul up the color so he won't get too jealous!

Best Regards!

Beautiful work, Tess. Poor little bugs never stood a chance.

great shots, hope those bugs don't harm the beautiful flowers of yours, that is quite a spider in #1.

YES YES!!!

You know these are may kinds of photos, Tess, and these are wonderful. It's really a tough call between #1 and #4.... I'll go for #1, only because the hoverfly in #4 isn't that sharp. But overall a great series, and a virtual tip of the cap from me.

Gorgeous shots Tess. The spider is really a standout for me. The colors of the flowers, the focus, everything is just perfect.

Brilliant set, I'm going to be different and say number 4 is a real standout for me.

Thank you Rupert! I do use that lens all of the time... I keep thinking I should take out something different next time. Norman has been pretty busy with family issues as well as spending a lot of time gabbing in other areas of PF (something I stay away from!)

Thank you Bob... that is the ironic thing, some of the most beautiful or interesting bugs do eat the flowers. The leaf-hoppers and grasshopper for example. Ants, bees and spiders are good though!

Thanks so much luftfluss! I wish the hoverfly was better, but the image overall was so appealing to me I figured it was small enough to not matter. I always appreciate your images too!

Thank you Bruce. The beautiful pink lily really helped that image along.

Wow are these good. Do you shoot in natural light or use a flash?
I just ordered a Sigma 105 mm and this Tamron of yours is making me second guess my decision!
