I got outside after work today for a little while today before the sun went down to practice my macro photography with my fairly new Nikon 105mm VR and I took the following series of photos below with the lens (lens info & reviews found at the bottom of the post).
Before I got started I noticed a little friend peering through the fence at me. It’s my dog’s “girlfriend” Taffy. They run up and down the fenceline canoodling anytime they are both out at the same time which cracks me up. I quickly fired off a shot of her with the Macro lens. I think it came out pretty sharp! I printed a copy to give to my neighbors. 🙂
Now don’t be gossed out but Lucas was my sidekick on my backyard adventure tonight…and I was trying to get his cute nose but ended up with this while he was yawning…I wasn’t going to share…but I just had to:

Buythom.com had a very thorough review of the lens that I found exremely helpful and helped me to really understand the use of the lens.
