Still trying to do the macro thing. Full 300mm and edited crop.

Butterflies are too much of a challenge for my current skill level. Extension tubes work well for still shots. Maybe they would help out in the butterfly world?

I'm just giving the lens a torture test to see if it can fill the role of do-it-all for a couple of upcoming trips--one to Europe and one to South Africa. I want to keep the kit down to two cameras and two lenses for Africa so I don't have to change lenses--one supertelephoto and one versatile lens. Since it will all have to fit pretty compactly I want the cameras to use the same type of battery, charger, memory cards, etc.

Extension tubes can get you a bit closer, you do have to worry about how close will be too close for nervous and flighty subjects.

These two subjects in my yard are not very shy and all and they've become used to me getting close.

And a couple of shots at mid-range and a distance.

Taken a few months after I got the lens. Just now got around to doing a decent job of processing:

Really like how you captured how interested the cat is in something.

Here is one from last year when the lens and 7D were still quite new to me. This was the first time I kept shooting after sunset. It was so dark that AF no longer worked. Instead focus was based on the distance scale, which turns out is way off. That made the hyperfocal settings off. Other people were on the pier causing vibrations. The RAW was pretty soft but it is still one of my favorite shots.

Shot an abandoned house the other day and for the first time needed something wider angle. After this shot I ended up using the old 18-55 the rest of the day. It wasn't do too bad. In fact it had better results than the 18-135 IS on the 7D. I'll post some of them in the abandoned buildings thread.

These are with the 28-300L
