Common darter? I have had some better images (at a distance) with my 400mm lens over my 100mm macro lens.
I don’t find it easy to get good close ups with me Sigma 150 – 500 lens.
I have to stand 3.5 m away with my 400 but I get a ‘fuller’ image in terms of depth of field. However I don’t feel as connected to the subject.
Very nice image @ 500mm!
Sweet! Dragonflies are awesome!
Nice image! Try an extension tube to get a little closer. I use a 400mm with extension tubes a lot for closeups dragonflies. A tripod helps also with this combo. Then I use manual focus to get a more critical focus where I want it.
Thanks! I have X1.4 and X2 extenders, but I rarely use them or the manual focusing ring.
Excellent detail and focus.
I find that Sigma lens is useful in the most surprising of subjects.
Thanks, Vicky. I think this is the first time I have used my Sigma lens this year.
Great shot, Must get this lens when I can afford it. I was going to before but bought parts for a computer instead 🙂
Thanks, Bruce. I’m not sorry I bought the Sigma, and that was a few years ago.
