    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    Went on an outing yesterday with my local camera club to the Ringwood Manor state park. It's a lovely 18th century estate museum and surrounding grounds. I challenged myself to just use one lens the entire time, and a prime at that. So on went the 40mm Micro f/2.8 Nikkor, which of course is an excellent bug catchin' lens. I do wish I had a 60 or 85mm macro though, for shots like these. 40mm is great in the studio when I'm doing macro shots on a tripod and controlling the lights. But it does require you to get the lens pretty (very) close to the subject for really good macro, and trying to do that outdoors with moving, skittish subjects is tough. Tough to get everything in focus, tough to keep the shadow of the lens from getting into the shot, tough to keep from scaring away the subject itself before you even get your finger near the shutter button. Still, when it works the results can be quite nice. These are some of my favorites. Now I just have to decide which one to enter into this week's "Bugs" challenge....

    A little tough to tell, but this bad boy is encased in a very fine web "house":

    And of course, as I was processing these pics this morning a bug crawled across my desk. I still had the 40mm attached, and my coffee spoon to the side, so:

    Some non-macro shots from my outing yesterday.

    (Well I guess this one is kinda macro. The little guy wasn't much bigger than a silver dollar.)
