Same problem I have. I come upon something "macro-ish" which looks neat, but I don't have a macro lens. Some time I need to get some extention tubes so that I can at least get something decent in those situations.

The kenko extension tube set has 12mm, 20mm and 36mm tubes.

I tooka few sample images of some berries I found with the tubes. I all cases the lense was a 300mm set to focus as its minimum distance.

300mm lense with 12mm+20mm tubes

300mm lense with 12mm, 20mm and 36mm tubes

Note: with the 12mm+20mm+36mm tubes the 300mm lense was focusing at about 12inches, and "focuseing" is done by moving the tripod in and out until the subject comes into focus.

To get any DOF the lense was at its max of f22.
