I'm really not sure about this one, mostly because it's not quite what I was after – it's close, but, to my mind at least, there's something missing. I guess that part of the problem is that although I've had my macro lens for a couple of months I haven't spent a great deal of time trying to take this sort of extreme close-up, and I've discovered that they're a lot harder than you might expect. Part of the problem is the very limited depth of field, but the lighting is really difficult too, particularly if you're trying to use flash.

More practice needed ;-)

Oh, and through shooting at f/18.0 I've discovered that I need to clean my sensor, ... which I hate doing :-/
