Hi there. My name is Mike, and I live in Jinju, South Korea. I love taking photos of butterflies. I also keep my eye in through the winter by snapping birds. I’ve joined this group to learn (and offer critiques later). I’ve just bought a Nikon D500 having worn out 2 7100s. My beloved 105mm f2.8 Macro lens is still holding up well. For birds I’m using the Tamron 150-600. I live in the heart of the countryside, so most days I go out to see what’s afoot (or usually awing!). I guess my main reasons for taking photos are: a) I love it b) To capture the beauty of nature c) To keep a record of what could easily be lost later.
Hi Mike! Welcome to NPN! Looking forward to seeing your butterfly photos, and anything else you care to post.
Welcome aboard! Oh the Nikon 105 macro - a fabulous lens. Looking forward to seeing what you put in front of it!
