Red, I want to shoot Florida bugs too -- somehow they are hiding somewhere I don't know! :-(

From my backyard in Florida... Taken with a D70 and Nikon 75-300mm

Florida bugs are hiding? You must be kidding. Just go to the Everglades and take off your shirt.

I heard a story that some brave young guy once did an experiment just like that. He took off his shirt at the beach in the Everglades. In no time he was covered by mosquitoes. Someone took a picture of him and then he got rid of the mosquitoes and put his shirt back on. They printed the image and counted some 100+ mosquitoes.

No offence to your 200mm lens Arnab. However sharp it may be, it gives one of the worst bokeh I have seen (not surprisingly, in line with the other micronikkors).

As always, Albert Smith shows yet another example (I like the 50mm shot better) of beautiful bokeh.

You have pointed Arnab in the right direction, Shun!

Shun Cheung , Jan 23, 2005; 05:55 p.m.

I don't think I would consider that the right direction. :-) Seriously, do not try that experiment yourself. You could end up in the emergency room.

I have been to Florida a number of times, mainly for bird photography. And insect repellant is a must over there. I always wear a long-sleeve shirt there but I have been bitten at my elbow and ankel through my clothing.

The 200mm macro is great for macro work but not so great for just about anything else. I think I have mentioned that I tested it against my 80-200mm/f2.8 AF-S. Near infinity, the zoom is considerably better at 200mm.
