Is it possible to take photos of insects with a telephoto lens?

Tamron 150-600mm lens delivers quality close-up photos of insects

I was out shooting some pictures of birds with the Tamron 150-600mm and then suddenly I saw a dragonfly on a leaf. I quickly zoomed in on it and took a picture. The result is showed below.

Red dragonfly (Oriental Scarlet Crocothemis servilia), its a male. Male is totally red colored and female is olivaceous brown in color. It lives everywhere near stagnant water reservoirs such as tanks, ponds and paddy fields. This shot is taken with my big lens, but I got it to look like macro photography. Its taken in India.

Now who says you can’t take a good macro picture with a big lens? I just proved it is possible. Here is one more proof:

I also took a picture of a butterfly. I think the result turn out pretty good. I have not done anything to the picture just added my logo.

I am not saying that you should replace your macro lenses with a telephoto lens. I am just glad you can take different photo styles with one lens.
