I want to learn to take photos of insects macro.
I will need the following ?
1) macro lens (any recommendation?)
2) tripod (hand held not recommended right? sometimes find it too heavy to bring out)
3) patience (do I need a lot of patience to wait for the dragonfly, grasshoppers to settle down?)
4) knowledge and love for the insects (I need to read up about the insects I am going to take to know their characters?)
