Tamron 90mm Macro

Bee my Snail
While a bee collects pollen from a strawberry plant a snail devours our clematis. Both shots with a Tamron 90mm f2.5 manual focus macro lens. The bee, which is really sharp on its wings was hand-held.
Set-up for the snail was more complicated. Iso 400, 1/4 sec at f16 with fill-in flash off camera from the side and Stofen diffuser, camera on a tripod and fired with self-timer. There's some luminence from the flash but it was just a quick 10 minutes, I am no Heather Angel.
