Porch Light Bugs

Tonight I did some pictures of bugs surrounding the porch light. I took these using my 100mm f/2.8 Canon USM lens.

I think this is a mosquito hawk.

I didn't realize this lens could do macro shots like this, so I was pleasantly surprised with these pictures. However, this is the first time I have ever had "steady hands" issues taking pictures. I was shooting at 100th of a second at 100mm.

I can usually shoot down to 30th of a second hand held with no blurring, but I suppose the weight of the 100mm lens, which I am not used to, did it.
