Nicely captured. a slightly shorter focal length would have given us the whole bee, which would have been nice. Also, as the 70-300mm is considered to lose sharpness at the full 300mm, a shorter focal length would have made tis even crisper.

Thank you Ken.
When in the macro mode of the 70-300mm lens you are locked at 300mm and manual focus. I have also tried shorter focal lengths with the 70-300mm but I don't seem to get sharper images that others have reported. I do find it will auto focus quicker at shorter focal lengths.
