Of course I would like to own a macro lens. But that is not likely to happen anytime soon, unless someone stumbling across my blog wants to buy one of my photographs for say...um...$1000.00. That would get me some pretty nice close up shots! Until that happens, I will content myself with my trusty kit equipment of 18-55 mm, I will get down on my knees really low and I will snap away. This was taken in my backyard just by my deck. Tiny leaves, a reminder of fall in the middle of winter.
