Macro for Fun

Little green spiders, yellow tree sap, camouflage spiders, … the land of “Macro”.  I enjoyed the Macro Walk today yet need more hours in the field to refine my skills, in particular manual focus at the minimum focus distance (30mm).  Trying a crossed-arm position to hold the camera steady while leaning back and forth for the focus given the very shallow depth of field.
