So crisp, clean and detailed.....I think you've just managed to boost macro lens sales with this presentation. I'm sure it's encouraging for those who don't already own a macro lens (like me) you've planted the seed.

Surreal . . . ツ

I finally splurged and got myself a <b>true</b> Macro lens!! <b>ALL</b> of the previous macros in my gallery, the dragon faces, the dandies, the flowers, my eye shots, etc . . . all of them were either taken with my wonderful Nikon Point and Shoot and/or my Canon Rebels with a <b>kit lens and some cheap tubes</b>.
I\'ve never used a true 1:1 macro lens! <b>I\'m STOKED</b> .. the last three <b>Dandy</b> shots were taken today (after work) with my very first and own Macro Lens !!! :):):):) I bought the Canon <b>100mm L lens</b>
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. :):)
