My last blog article was a submitted a really long time ago, somewhere in November 2009 which was about discovering a new world. This one is mostly like a follow-up.
So, first of all, the lens was actually MP-E 65mm, not 60mm. But 5mm more or less, i guess not a big difference :D
A short overview what i have achieved with it. As i've said the lens is fully manual and therefore a lot of time for good shots is needed. Although the lens is quite new to me, i may say i've got some good shots last summer, but way to go to have perfect shots. Mostly i was into a small bugs, bees, wasps. I even got one coulple busted while they were having... a really great time :)
But the snow is melting heavily and summer is getting closer and closer. Hopefully i will have more time to practice this summer and get some really great close-ups.
Bees and swaps are great to photograph as they are not that afraid of people than flies or many other bugs. And they would be even better subjects if i wouldn't afraid them. So far, never been needled, and i never want to :)
