September in New Jersey can be a great time of year for photographing many type of caterpillars. Monarch Caterpillars have especially nice patterning to them and I always look forward to capturing frames of them. The cooperative caterpillar below provided a great opportunity to test the close-focusing ability of the Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC HLD All-In-One lens.
The 18-400mm has a minimum focusing distance of 17.75″ (45cm) and a 1:2.9 maximum reproduction ration. Translation = you can fill the well with small subject matter on this Tamron. Download the full resolution straight out of camera (sooc) jpeg off my Canon Rebel SL2 from my Google Drive account
