    On my Sony A68, the image stabilisation is in the camera, so I don't need to buy expensive lenses with stabilisation.

    My only question is how do you get pictures of bees without getting stung? Cause there are flowers outside my house with about 5 or more bees.

    I am hoping to buy a macro lens in the next week I am using a d7100 body. I am wondering what focal length to use I am torn between 100mm and 180mm. I am wanting to photograph flowers, insects, and reptiles.

    Would a prime lens work ok, or is macro the only way to go?

    which camera would you recommend for an enthusiast photographer / semi pro currently using Fujifilm T550 as wanting to upgrade on a $250 budget? for nature, insects, animals in some action birds in flight?

    Just bought this book, should have it in a few days.
    I was taking some pictures in my garden yesterday on my Nikon D5300 with macro reverse ring to help me get close up.

    Excellent, informative video Tony and team. It was delightful to see the Hummingbird making a cameo appearance at about the 3:07 time mark. Coming in from the right side image background, then flying between Tony's left side and the flowers, at about neck level. Thanks.

    Is there a german version of your book?

  35. Tony & Chelsea Northrup
    July 4, 2017 at 17:40

    It's a great lens, though you're going to have a tough time photographing insects with it. A macro telephoto would be a better choice for that specific task. Check Chapter 12 of Stunning Digital Photography for more info.

    Hi is there any way you could make a toutorial of I think they call it a colour splash were the subject is in colour but the background is b&w if you can that would be great thanks.

    Thank for getting the book, D!

    I love my 7D. It's my go-to camera body for all of my long-distance wildlife photography, and usually my outdoor sports photography. Yeah, it's noisy unless I'm in full sunlight, but the detail can't be beat.

    Thanks for your answers, Tony! (Just posted a comment to your incredible orchard spider shot on FB. Then onto buying your ebook…and sending you more questions…. 🙂 )

    That's the real working distance. You're right that the crop body will bring you closer–I was using a full-frame body, so you'd have some more working distance with a 105mm than I would with a 150.

  41. Greg VXN
    July 4, 2017 at 17:40

    It's actually surprising how close you're getting to the objects in your video – was it the actual distance you'd be shooting at with your 150mm or you got closer just for a nicer composition in the video?. (I should've mentioned that I use a DX body (D5100) and so, presumably, a 105mm macro should do the trick for me.)
