Wonderful captures Toby.
Seen a couple of chasers this year but not managed a shot yet.

Are you using tubes? Excellent details and very nice background in the first image.

Very nice! About how far away do you need to stand for this lens to focus?

Minimum focus at 400mm is 2 feet (60cm) from the front of the lens.

These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

Wow that bee!! It seems like it would be impossible to catch that so clear while moving!

They certainly do. Not a bee, but a dronefly, or hoverfly. The thing about that gal was she fixated on me, when I was out fishing on a loch in a rowing boat. She set her mark on a point about 2 feet in front of my face and stuck to it like glue. And she sat there and sat there. If I waved her away, she just came back to the exact same point. And, that was just too close to be able to focus with the 100-400 II. So, I had to wave her away and try to get a shot of her before she came back to her mark. It took dozens of attempts before I managed a couple of shots that caught her in focus.

That's funny, your own little "drone" bee. Perhaps it was a new DJI Spark II that was being tested!

:D She was telling you that you were sweet!

I've noticed this too...the lens can act as a macro from 10 feet away.

....well, sort of.....
