oh come one...that's it!? that's how close you can get??????

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"hahaha jk

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"that's pretty darn close...but i'm guessing you were pretty darn close to the subject! am i right?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"a macro lens would keep you a foot or two away...giving any insect subjects some breathing room

who cares how close you can get. That's a great shot. If you had stopped down the lens to around f16 or more the depth-of-field would have been better but I like it anyway.
