Lens Description: Doing macro photography outdoors in the wild often means that you can't get too close to your subject and lighting can't be easily controlled. Greater working distance means you can capture tight macro shots of small-scale wildlife without scaring it away, and you're not so close that you need special lighting to illuminate your subject.
