I’ve finally discovered what I’ve been doing wrong with my 105mm macro lens and also have found that all of a sudden a tripod is in order! Now I understand what I have been reading, about macro lenses being best on tripods. The detail is amazing and the depth of field moves in and out with just the slightest breeze or movement. I can hardly stand still enough to keep whatever I’ve focused on in focus. All of this was discovered because I took my focus off of automatic and on to manual… a lot more fun can be had in manual!

Those are just a few of the fun ones… I’ve uploaded all the rest on my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mudranch and in my Flickr account to your right, though those have been recently buried by my updated sheep-y pictures.
