Yeah, here's a piece of information I might have left out: I'm shooting bees. This is where getting right up on 'em with the 60mm Macro set at 1:1 might not be the best practice. I've even gotten right on top of black widows with the 60mm Macro, but some critters prefer you use the long telephoto.

Which are the spiders that jump? Is it Funnel Webs? Or, is that a myth? I suspect there are some critters where distance might be welcome!!

I've just acquired a 60 macro (arriving today) and will compare with my 40-150, but suspect they'll be used for different purposes. I really like the idea of getting real macro shots and trying out focus stacking.
