I like using my Sigma 105mm DG Macro lens. Here's a Paper Wasp eating a moth.

Wow, I can't believe the results from that sigma. Your colors and detail really are amazing and you captured some scary looking moments as well.

These are very nice photos, but they all seem to have an heir of being a little too bright, or something. I don't know what it is, maybe just the exposure (did you use flash?) but it just irritates me. They're nice and all, but I don't like it.

The sunlight here can be very bright and in fact a little harsh at times so maybe I should start taking shots early in the morning when the light is more subdued.

All but the last are greatly lacking sharpness and overall IQ. It appears you have a large hot pixel in the second image also.


The first has an incredible subject and event going on.... but the image seems almost cheap P&S like. Im wondering where the quality went

#2 appears heavely cropped and soft with almost no detail.

The last shots angle makes the image look unappealing and rather boring/busy.

Keep at it!

Still learning only having started in February this year so I'll keep practicing.
