Don’t want to bug you…
…but it is summer and it is a great time for macro.
Wherever you go you will find a insect, weather you like it or not. The bugs are easier to spot and there are more chances to take those nice macro shots.
I found a nice looking creature when I was out walking. I found a colorful orange/black striped bug called Graphosoma lineatum in Latin. It probably have several names in different languages. It was easy to work with the bug because it was completely still and staring at me. It made a good pose on that stone too. When the bug had enough it just walked away.
The picture was taken with Canon 70D and the Tamron 90mm f2.8 lens. The picture has the following setup f/11, ISO 2000 and 1/160 sec.

Flowers in a macro world
I have posted a lot of articles about Tamron 150-600mm. This time it will be about Tamron 90mm f2.8. I have used a Canon 70D for this picture. I can really recommend Tamron 90mm 2.8 as a great macro lens. It is also a cheaper alternative to the Canon 100mm macro lens. Tamson 90mm do not have image stabilizer, but I have been able to take really nice pictures even without that. I am using the older model of the 90mm lens. Now there is a newer version which is waterproof.
I love to take macro pictures. It is like being in another world. You can look at a flower and see its beauty, but only if you get really close you can see all the amazing details.
That is it for this time, feel free to comment. Don’t forget to like me on Facebook to keep yourself updated on new articles about photography.

Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 2
I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment. This picture is taken handheld.
Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.

Birds taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens
I went to Sri Lanka to test my Tamron 150-600mm lens in the wild. In every corner you will find some animal just waiting for its photo opportunity. Like the bird seen above, it was very calm and did not mind getting photographed. The bird is a green bee-eater.
The pictures above are showing a purple Heron, cattle Egrets, Little Cormorant, Grey Heron, Intermediate Egret and a purple Heron flying.
A little purple swamphen is in the picture above. I was lucky to get a picture of it before it ran away. This was from the Bundala national park, a bird sanctuary.
A fight between 2 males that both wants to have the little island behind them with one female. The birds are called White-breasted Waterhen.
Most of the pictures are not from a national park. These birds can be found in the wild anywhere in Sri Lanka.
