My New Macro Lens

I’m just thrilled. I finally have a decent macro lens. I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet, and get the new Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro with IS. It’s a beautiful lens. Had so much fun playing with it a little today just outside my house. Can’t wait to really take it out and see what it can do. And I must tell you….I have the most insane and irrational fear of bees. But I couldn’t help myself today. I somehow felt perfectly safe when looking through the lens. Silly…I know.

Here are a few pictures...sorry they're not numbered...I just went ahead and posted the composites I did for my blog.

Love, love!!! You are exciting me so much now because I have the Nikkor 105mm2.8 macro on the way! (Decided to stick with Nikon and not be stuck in a slump)

Love the composite of Nathan. The bokeh is amazing for it not being even that far away.
