  13. This is mostly what I use since it's the gear I have on hand. I've got the Sigma 150-600 (same as you?) and can get good shots for the larger stuff like butterflies and dragonflies. Otherwise it's generally good enough for ID purposes. If your goal is better pics, then you might consider a dedicated macro setup. I bought a cheap set of extension tubes and flash that I use on my original kit camera w/ the 18-55 lens. Focusing is a pain since you have to get super close which usually scares the bug. It can get better results, but most of the shots are throwaways. It's also another camera to carry so I rarely use it, just occasional shooting in the backyard. I've considered getting a better macro lens but I'm not sure I'd use it enough. @chipperatl and @The Bird Nuts might have more advice. They've written some on doing macro photography earlier in this thread or on the dedicated macro one
  14. Least Bittern #453 - Nearly heard-only for a frustratingly close bird. Did get one heavily obstructed look through all the vegetation.
