Blogged this once.
It didn't take.
This is my second attempt.

The bud was a happy surprise.
Bug was unexpected joy but not a macro lens in sight.

Still, happy with the detail of hair, goldness and eyes on the fly, after cropping.

eos 30d, shutter 1/800, f5.6, focal 50mm (18-55 mm lens), iso 100

Wow. You're amazing.I'm frustrated this semester by being limited to only a 50 mm lens. No zooms, no macros, nothing! But I'm learning to appreciate what it does well at, and exploit that. Your shot shows that it really is possible get a great capture without fancy equipment.

Beautiful detail. You did a great macro with a fixed lens!
