Random Photo: Dragonfly and Butterfly

Two photos taken (again) last weekend using the Tamron 70-300mm.  The Tamron is an amazing lens (focusing is sometimes an issue). With this lens, I don’t need to bring my 100mm macro for closeups (though of course magnification is limited to .25x instead of 1:1). The resolution of the lens is not as good as the macro lens (with the macro lens, I can pixel peep and still see lots of details). BUT, the Tamron has IS (or VC in its terms) and the long minimum focus distance is very good for photographing insects.
