More From Benezette...


Last week a posted a black squirrel from Benezette and mentioned that we photographed more than just Elk. Here is the proof, we also photographed insects and other things you will see in the future. The one lens we do not own is a macro so we shoot items like this by getting further away and using the big lens. The first photo is Shane using the D90 that he always uses with my newer lens and tripod that I got earlier in the year. I think he really likes using that set up.

Speaking of Shane today's is Tuesday and that means a new post on his blog so please stop by and visit it.

Thanks for the note, Brad. Everyone at home is well. Some changes coming next week. Got a kickback on your email today. If you still have mine please send email and I'll get right back to you.

Brad, that is a very nice setup. I hope James doesn't see it because he will want me to buy something like that! Glad you had a good time in Benezette again! We are hoping to get there sometime in August.

Hi Brad,

It may be a mistake to let Shane use that rig as he may get addicted to it and want one like it!

Brad, using the bigger lenses for shooting insects does work pretty well. Being able to stay some distance away doesn't spook the critters who will not allow a macro being stuck in their face.

If you haven't tried it yet I would suggest adding an extension tube to your setup. I currently use a Kenko 25mm on the 100-400 that allows me to get much better close-ups than I could otherwise.

What is that monster lens your son is using on the D90 there? And the camouflage, is that your own invention?
I admired the dragonfly elsewhere I think.
