    Red face Newbie with new Tamron Macro lens

    newbie here, just bought a tamron 90mm f2.8 macro lens using Canon 500D
    hoping to capture some insects close up shots
    went to botanic garden but only get to see dragonflies..
    Any recommendations to places with exotic and wide range of insects species to capture?
    I love praying mantis..any idea where?

    Learn about the insects first. You need to understand them a lil, such as the minimum distance you can get near, etc...

    Don't expect your first few trips to produce excellent results. Keep trying.

    Macro lens itself should be sufficient for shooting dragonflies. Try to shoot w/o the 500D first unless you wanna take super macro shots.
