Look at the bright green head on this guy.  A bit odd becuase the rest of him was brown.

Many were done laying on my tummy with a bean bag rest.  Here's the rest of the collection.

Here's a shot I took yesterday of a Timber Rattlesnake.

I love this lens.  Very sharp even at 300 mm and compact enough where I don't mind trudging through the woods with it all day.

Here's a few more I took today with my 7D.  I'm very satisfied with the sharpness of this lens even at 300 mm.
It's been a very good spring for reptiles and amphibians in Wisconsin!

Another Green Frog (something about this photo I really like)

Here's a few shots I took last weekend.

Get a macro lens, you won't regret it.  Your biggest decision is whether to go with IS or not.  Canon, Sigma and Tamron all manufacture very good macro lenses.  You can get tack sharp photos from any of them.

Detailed Nikon D7100 specs:
 •24.1MP CMOS sensor
 •No AA filter (similar to the D800E)
 •51 AF point, 15 cross-type
 •Built-in HDR function
 •2016-pixel RGB sensor
 •3.2" 1,229k dots LCD screen
 •Dual SD card slots
 •EXPEED 3 processor
 •ISO range: 100-6400
 •100% viewfinder coverage
 •Video: 1080p @ 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps plus 720p @ 60p
 •Compatible with the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter

One thing I found interesting was the

1.3x crop mode:
 This mode boosts your lens' focal range by 1.3x which translates to a 1.95x crop, much like a Micro Four Thirds camera. This gives you extra zoom capabilities without the hassle of changing lenses.

Macro / Re: Some nature Macro

Here's a few snakes and lizard photos I took recently.  Canon T2i and Tamron 90mm.

Some may avoid the D600 due to reports of oil/dust on the sensor.

Looks like Fry's is an In Store Only price.
Sorry, it was available for shipping when I first posted it.

Fry's and Adorama are both reputable.
