    I don't feel I'm getting anywhere fast with Macro Photography. I find the extremely shallow depth of field very hard to work with - especially in Breezy Northumberland.

    Anyway, this one wasn't taken with a Macro Lens - it was a Canon 55-250mm. It is a crop and it's not perfect by any means, but it's the best I got this afternoon.

    This is a Clover leaf with droplets.

    These were taken with a JVC HD Everio...Shows I don't need a whole bunch of stuff for close up's anymore....Having said that, I'm not really that good on Macro stuff...Most of my stuff is the exact opposite!
