3/365: Macro Monday

untitled.jpg

I'm so excited to learn how to really use this lens. Unfortunately, even macro items don't like to sit still for me! The tiniest movement causes focus to shift... and then I have to get it back manually. I'm learning the DOF and focusing techniques that work best, though, and by the end of the year hopefully I'll be macro proficient :)

edited to add... yep, it is a decaying leaf. The pretty lemons on the tree above it where not nearly as cooperative as this dead leaf :)
