Since I wrote my last blog, I have been out three times using my macro lenses. I utilize for my macro work Nikon D 810 and either my Nikkor 105 mm or my Tamron 180 mm macro lenses.
The subjects that I was able to obtain were flowers, damselflies, and bee species. The first day that I was out was just before the rains coming, it was brightly overcast, and there was no wind. This day I handheld my rig. The next to episodes that I was out it was sunny, and I utilize my tripod for my images. Many different species of flowers are starting to bloom and as the days progress the variety of species will change. The same holds true for both damselflies and dragonflies.
Just because you are photographing with a macro lens does not mean you cannot get images of birds in flight.
Enjoy the summer, and autumn will be here in almost two months.
