That macro lens that I’ve been lusting after for quite some time is now a part of my collection. I can’t tell you how excited I am to take it out. In the meantime you can see how I have been using Mr Peanuts cat grass as a model. I tried to use the cat, but he objects strongly to having a lens in his face.
The cat grass is just regular grass in a pot. It grows really fast so I was forced to give it a trim. (It does smell like freshly mown lawn, which isn’t at all bad.) Also for any other folks with indoor cats I really recommend getting this stuff. Mr Peanut loves it. Yanks it (root and all) out of the pot and leaves it bitten and chewed all over the kitchen. Such a scamp.
Anyway it has been a great model, but I need to find some creepy crawlies to really test this lens…
