Greg Rumney had a macro lens he wasn’t using, and I had two hard drives I wasn’t using. He needed something to back up his computer, so it seemed like a good trade. Today while I was at home still recovering from the flu, I wandered around the yard looking for good macro subjects. At first I thought this was a pussy willow bud, but on closer inspection I found that wasn’t the case. The new Nikon D80 and this lens make a good pair for macro photography.
