I just received a present! A 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens. The bees will have no peace for a while! It seems to work jut fine on my old obsolete D80. Click as usual to enlarge.
While waiting, I played with my old manual 55mm micro-nikkor.
I got the email an hour ago that it was in the box at the gate. The UPS guy is to lazy to drive to the house from the gate, or possibly afraid of friendly cows. Just then the rain stopped & Theresa got this next shot with the point & shoot Canon.
The new lens is incredibly sharp judging from shots I've been taking of everything from the carpet to the dust on my keyboard. Maybe there will be a sun break tomorrow & the bees will be back out.
