[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my first attempts with my new macro lens and am pleased with it. I set the lens to the close focus and meved in and out till it was sharp. Other people say use a tripod but by the time I have managed to set it up the subject has flown. Any suggestions gratefully received.

This is just one of many species of Hover fly that come to my garden.

Hi John,

Very nice composition,sharp and detailed,however I recommend as you already mentioned a tripod,pictures will have better focus and with your macro lens and evt a converter,you can keep some distance so that you can capture your object before its flown,



Hi John
This shot is very nice composition, sharp, detailed and colour.

Really a great start, not much to criticize from my point.
