The picture of these Flesh Flies mating was taken at Stuyvesant Cove Park on the East River in New York City. The picture was taken with the CANON EOS20D and the CANON 100 Macro lens.
The picture of ths Bumblebee on Sneezeweed Flower was taken at Stuyvesant Cove Park in New York City. This picture was taken with a Canon 100mm Macro lens on a Canon EOS 20D. I use the Canon 580EXII flash on the hotshoe of the camera as a fill flash.
I am finding the combination of the Canon EOS20D with the Canon 100mm Macro lens a winning combination for Macro shots. I can hand hold it and get in really close to the subject. Auto focusing is fast and accurate as long as the subject is not moving.
The picture of this Honey Bee was taken at Stuyvesant Cove Park on the East River in New York City. This picture was taken with the CANON EOS 20D with the CANON 100MM, f2.8 Macro lens. I really like the combination of the CANON EOS20D with this Macro lens. I tried working with the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100 Macro lens and found it really hard to focus correctly.
I have really been enjoying going regularly to Stuyvesant Cove park and taking my time getting pictures of the insects and fauna and flora that I find in my neighborhood.
