Super

That's a great photo. What camera/lens do you use?

Camera

Thanks! That's an EOS 60D, with a Canon 100mm macro lens and a ring flash. This combination lets me use a short exposure at f/22, so great for hand-held macro shots. Sometimes I have to take them with one hand. You also need a willingness to fling yourself onto the ground! And they don't all turn out like this, of course.
