Photo Friday—Macro

It’s funny that macro came up as a subject on photofriday this week, since I was just a few days ago talking to Eric about needing to buy a proper macro lens. I still haven’t decided what to get. I’d like to get the Canon MP-E so that I’ll be able to photograph the hair on a fly’s butt, but I’ve read (and Eric confirmed) that lens is difficult to use, due to the extremely shallow depth-of-field. Speaking of shallow DOF, I know this photo’s is a hair too shallow, but I was shooting handheld in shade, so I couldn’t really stop down. Anyways, I figure if I post enough slightly OOF photos, I can call it a “style.” :)
