Macro shots with my new lens

Some macro images shot with my new-ish EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS Macro lens.  Still constantly amazed by the crazy shallow DOF.  Considering picking up a crop body just to gain some DOF, as macro rails can't really help with moving live bugs.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Seriously!  Since getting this lens I have been walking around, and even driving around, looking out of the corner of my eye at clumps of flowers or weeds that might have good bugs.  Loving this lens.

Re: Macro shots with my new lens

I know the exhiliration that you're feeling.  I picked one up several weeks ago.  The lens is razor sharp.  Try taking some shots that are not closeups, and you will see what I mean.
