what camera are you using, and what is the smallest aperture you have available on you lens?

Yes, and if you ever shot Insect Close Ups you would know they are constantly moving...stopping down is great except for motion blur from and insect moving during a slow shutter speed...so not always an option unless of course you always shoot static subjects...
