Wouldn't think of the 17-50 as an insect lens, these look lovely!

Thanks for the comments everyone! I really like the sigma 17-50 lens a lot. It isn't my first choice for insect closeups but its what I happened to have at the time. I was fortunate my subjects tolerated the giant lens getting close to them.
