The last photo of my macro lens

My macro lens died and I’m totally calm about it (WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAHHHHHHH!). It’s taken many many photos over the years, and it’s served me well on three continents, so I can’t complain.  Still, it’s hard not to be sad; the timing was quite awful.  I was in Arizona, in the middle of a bee biodiversity hotspot, and I couldn’t take any photos.  (Oh, well I tried to take some bee photos with a friend’s telephoto, but it didn’t work out so well.)

It might be a while before I can afford a new macro lens.  Of course, the holidays are coming up soon…maybe if I beg enough, my family will help me get one.

Here’s the last photo my macro lens took before it had its fatal error:


It’s a Colletes sp.

    • It was a 100 mm tokina…I don’t know what made it die, although someone (and this is just hearsay so who knows) says that lenses have a certain number of photos they can take before they get worn out. Hmm…I really liked that Tokina, but I guess I can’t afford much right now
