Shifting from birds to scarabs.
This "guy" has visited flowers at my balcony some days ago and I used the 55mm micro Nikkor f/3.5 at MFD to take a picture.

These scarabs of the subfamily Cetoniinae - genus Gymnetis - are more interested in flowers than faeces.

Great pic Jose and I applaud the beetle's taste!

As the MFD of 55mm f/3.5 micro was just ~24cm and I needed a larger working distance to avoid disturbing the beetle, I took the TC14A which made a "77mm f/5 Micro Nikkor".
These shots were taken at a more confortable (~50cm) distance.
I think this combo works very well.
With the 55s (f3.5 & f2.8) and the 105mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkors in my collection + TCs, I think the next AF lens "victim" to be sold is my almost unused Sigma 150/2.8...

Wow, that was a killer sunset John, very nicely seen!

One from today's stroll to the office, looking up at the intersection of College and Bathurst Streets. NIKKOR*ED 180mm f/2.8 AI-s, at f/2.8.

Further up Bathurst St is a high school/technical college (I don't know which, actually) called Central Technical School. They don't make schools like this anymore. NIKKOR*ED 180mm f/2.8 AI-s, wide open. The sharpness out of this lens is just fantastic, no matter the aperture.

If you hate this please hide me. It started out as an HDR and evolved into something else. Taken with the much unloved 50 1.4 AI-S from the South Street Bridge in Philly. The exact opposite side of the city view of the pano I posted previously. You can not shoot anything low in this area as some inconsiderate knucklehead decided to put a lighted tennis complex right below the bridge which really plays havoc with night shots.

Americo - good to hear!

Ian - is that the f/2.8 or f/2? I'm becoming interested in the f/2, despite the bad rap it gets in reviews... and those are lovely pictures btw! Sea trees and sleat sea are my favourites of the set.

Thank you!

It's the f2.8 and I'm very happy with it. Works fine on my D700 too.

Inspired by the Lodestar image from Laura, and continuing to try new ideas and stay out of a recent rut, here's a couple pics of a Heinkel He-111 model. Its sat on the same dresser for a few years and has lost the tips of its props at the top, and one of two torpedos.

First one taken with the 28 3.5 PC, lens rotated 180 deg and shifted all the way down to see the wheel assembly head on. Just resting on the counter and used live view, a flashlight directed at the wheel, and a shoe-mounted SB-800. I think at f/8?



Second shot of the whole plane with the 28 3.5 PC without any shift or rotation.

Samy, it's strange, but over 5.000 pieces of this death-bringing plane were built in my hometown. I'm waiting for my copy of the PC 28/3.5 - maybe I take a few pictures of the "Heinkel-Werke"-ruins as first test.

Good catch Ian, I guess I didn't get the decals right. It also has the Stalingrad decal on it even though the paint scheme indicates a different location for its deployment. I took a few liberties with what was in the kit The remaining torpedo's the wrong color too

Ian, love the "Sea-Trees" flexed through the coastal storms. Beautiful, classic B&W!
And as a wannabe-seaman I like the picture of the Ferry - very cool way to take the cars onboard.

Georg, those machines certainly were meant and used for an evil purpose. But they and other planes of that time period fascinate me since so much innovation in the air happened in the matter of a few years. I will be very interested in any images from those ruins when you are able to get those.

I also have a model of a B-47 6-engined bomber that I want to try the 28PC on next. That's a fun lens, I am still learning it, and I think you will really enjoy it.
