When is a macro a macro? Good Question. Is it a macro because you happen to take the photo with a macro lens, or is it a macro because you are as close as possible, trying to avoid getting stung by a wasp or a bee or being careful not to disturb a fly that has just settled for the macro of the year. I played safe with this experiment. It is the seeds of a green pepper, taking with my macro lens. I should use the lens more often, but I am too lazy and when I have a wonderful sharp focus, everything surrounding it is one big blur.
