OK, I tried to get a shot of pollen on a weed in my garden this afternoon, but no matter how I tried to do it, the shot just turned out CRAP!

This is my futile attempt at trying to capture it.

Your advice and comments are welcome.

F4 - Shutter 1/210s

you might need some post processing. the picture looks a bit soft. maybe a bit of sharpening might help.

That is not bad at all. The only suggestions I would make would be to try a smaller aperture for more DOF, and use a pod or sandbag to brace the camera to avoid the tiny bit of blur. I most always carry a mini pod with me. It fits in a jacket pocket easily and is incredibly useful. In wam weather, it can be awkward, since without a jacket, the only place to carry it is in the front trouser pocket, and then all the ladies think I am really happy to see them. :-)

The shot appears to have a lot of noise. Somewhat akin to taking it at very high ISO. Is this so? If so then reduce the ISO setting.
