That means a lot, coming from the master of macro. I don't know how you get such great focus, though.

Is there a macro setting on your camera?

This shot was taken with a macro lens, G. It's a short telephoto (105mm) that also has the capability to close focus to 1:1, I think it is. I've had the lens for a few months but have been obsessed with my longer tele-zoom lens and birds, so I haven't used this one much.

I could get sharper by backing off a bit, I guess, or by tightening up the lens aperture, but I'm greedy -- I want a CLOSE up!

I guess I'll get the hang of it, eventually. I've never been very good at macro work. I'm not patient enough, probably is the trouble. (And I'm too lazy to use a tripod!)
