While visiting a farm in Morris, NY, I came across a number of excellent macro opportunities. Here are a couple of my favorites, all shot with this lens by Canon. If you're looking for a terrific closeup lens, this is a real bargain at half the price of the newer model.
While I was taking photos, the dogs were also exploring the landscape, mostly with their noses. Here's a shot of Miles and Opal crossing a downed log over the stream.
