What lens did you take these with?

I bought 4 praying Mantis eggs on ebay early this Spring and put them out in different parts of the yard. They took 2-3 months to hatch but they each let out hundreds of the little guys They are carnivores so lots of them get eaten by the stronger ones and a lot get eaten by birds. I still have tons of them around the yard and they've grown to about 2-3 inches. I don't have a macro lens but do have a 70-200 f2.8 IS v2 and a 100-400. Do you think a set of extension tubes with the 70-200 get me close enough? I don't know much about Macro photography.

Hi. I use a sigma 150mm macro OS with extension tubes,20,36,12! For higher magnification i think the 70-200 wont do, because closer doesnt always mean bigger! I recomend u a macro lens for macro photography, it s the best way!

The old sigma 150mm it s a very good and cheap lens,of course second hand if u find one!!

Dennis,

When my eggs hatched here outside Boston, I never had any survive more than a week or two. I'm surprised so many lived for you. Any secrets?

I think part of it is the placement of the eggs. I put them in boxwood bushes and they really blend in well. You really have to scour the bushes to find any of them. There are also tons of flies, micro sized moths and little things that look like news for them to feed on. They have grown really quickly. A handful are over 3" right now and I've found them all over the yard too which is cool. Hopefully they'll lay eggs and I'll have a ton of them next year too!

I'll definitely look into the sigma 150. Are there any non dedicated macro lenses that you think would be ok for me to use while looking for the sigma? 24-105, sigma 50, 85L v2, 100-400is? I bought some tubes yesterday and they should be here in a day or so.

Hi,dont complicate yourself with other lenses.
With 150mm u get a 1:1 magnification at 30cm,witch is a good working distance.Other non macro lenses doesnt give u 1:1 magnification.
I have had a sigma 17 70 mm macro but only could get 1:2 magnif at very close distance,5-6cm.
