All with 550D and Canon 60mm even though the last one went to explore, I wonder if f13.0 is the best aperture for this lens,
anyone used this lens got any thoughts (I think the second one is better than the last one).

Nice shots Very Happy but the second to the last looks like a "kissing bug." Ever hear of Chagas disease? Comes from rubbing kissing bug feces into the wound on your skin where the kissing bug has feasted on blood. Though nothing to worry about for the moment, just a bit of trivia Wink

The bug on your skin is a species of plant bug (family Miridae). It feeds on plant juices.

As I live in the UK I would be amazed if I got Chagas disease - although I doubt a doctor here would diagnose it quickly.
