Flight with a difference


I have also been experimenting with a Tamron 70-300mm macro lens at £99 on butterflies etc. I hope this demonstrates that you do not have to spend a fortune to buy a good macro lens which can also be used for bird photography due to its 70-300mm zoom ability

Tamron is renowned for good, budget macro lenses.

Yes, though I have a canon camera most of my lenses are sigma.
I see you had a great day out at Barnes.
