Try it without the tripod. It looks like thers's enough light. Put the camera in macro mode at iso200. Using the lcd to view, put the camera lens to about 2" from the leaf
Hey, Fred, with the 6t attached, what's the best method?

Thanks,

Merrill

I don't currently have an external flash. I do have a new halogen desk lamp. I set the camera up on a tripod, no flash, 10 second timer, spot focus and exposure. Adjusted the exposure to +1/3 based on the histogram.I think it came out much better, not perfect but better. Thank you for your suggestions. I cropped the orignal to frame it better that's it. Here is the exif:

That does look better but you still might want to try using the internal flash and a piece of white paper to bounce the flash, then try ASA 80 and higher fstops to increase your DOF. Also the 2 sec delay is probably a bit easier to work with.
