This is more of a semi-macro, taken using the Tamron 18-250mm handheld at 210mm, f/14, with wireless flash to try to prevent motion blur. It's about a 50% crop.

I would have used the Tamron 90 macro lens but I couldn't get close enough without getting wet

Hi! I thought it is time to end the lurking!
I got my Tamron 90 2.8 yesterday, so this is one of my first tries at macro.

Welcome from me also. Berries are a hard subject to get looking right, and you have done well.

Thank you very much guys!
Today was my first try at insect photographie, i quickly found out that it is quite hard to get these little fellows in sharp in the focus. I am also not that used to the lens (was my second day today with the tammie).

All I can say is that you are learning very quickly. I also began my macro adventures with a Tammie.
