Close-up of a flower bud on a "Lantana" plant.  I stacked the lens on top of two extenders, a 12 and a 25.  This is a crop from the original picture showing approximately 25% of the original.  Camera was a 40d.

What size is the moth? I know that some of the tropical moths grow larger, but then I suppose an elephant hawk moth we get here is pretty big (although I'm yet to see one, let alone try to photograph one.

We have some Chive plants in our front yard, and with a very late spring, they are just blooming.  Bees love them.  i do not have the patience to make a complex macro setup, I just walk up and shoot away.  The 100mm l is not really any sharper, but its easier for a person like me to get reasonably sharp hand held photos.

All of these are cropped to near 100%.







Scale...I've been debating whether or not to upgrade to the 100L, but I've read over and over again that it isn't any sharper...just like you said.  So the only advantage besides build Q is the IS, but don't you shoot handheld at 1/100 and faster when doing this type of macro?  (the walk up and shoot away kind- which is also my preference)

Initially I thought this was a spider.  It's a great shot, tell us how you did it?
