I put on my longer lens, I think it's 55 - 300. Then I set the camera to macro mode. I really don't know the correct way to use the settings and lenses, but I play around to see what I get.

If you enjoy close ups and detail you will love the Macro .. it is a whole 'nother world! I had been doing what you're doing ... using the macro setting on the camera but I was bowled over when I saw what this lens could do!!

I have the 55-250. I have been using the auto mode. I need really learn to use the camera to it's full potential.

Isn't it a fun camera?! I love mine too. I have no clue how to use most of the settings though. I saw that the community college by my house has classes for using your SLR camera...I'm thinking about taking the course just so I can learn to utilize the camera's full potential.

Nice closeups Pat. That was one of the first things I tried when I got my Nikon D90 DSLR. The pictures are good, but I agree with Sher that a Macro lens gets the exceptional photos. Too bad the lens is so expensive.

Pat - what fabulous pictures.:chili::chili:I'm so in awe of nature close up. I'm trying to figure out if that's a butterfly or one of those beautiful moths. Not sure how you tell the difference. I remember when my son did some report on them that some butterflies and moths have those large circles that are like eyes on their wings which scare off predators...but apparently not photographers. :HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley:Just beautiful. I'd love a really good camera but don't see that in the cards with my DSs college tuition. :huh:
