If you own a Tamron 150-600, you are mainly using this lens for birds and wildlife photography. So I picked up this lens to see if it could also work for my flower photography. It actually shoots a pretty small area, and does a great job at blurring the backgrounds. The working distance is about 8 feet from the subject when you’re near the minimum focusing distance, which is going to be great for dragonflies, butterflies, frogs, turtles, and other live subjects that take off as we get close to shoot. So next time your out shooting the birds and wildlife, take some time to look around you for some flowers or bugs to shoot.
