Getting Closer

These are a few of my attempts to learn how close I can get to make images with the 60mm lens.  Obviously, it varies with aperture (depth of field) and how steady I can hold the camera and often how well I can do that while focusing manually.  The ideal way to do it would be to use a tripod, but I don’t carry a tripod around with me.

The one image is of a spider web on an evergreen shrub with water drops on the web.
