First ever attempt at macrophotography.


Was inspired by a fellow Cazillion at


This was particularly difficult for me since I bought a reverse ring rather than a dedicated macro lens; so I did the focusing manually and trusted my eye (and failed a few times) in focusing since that green dot (on my Nikon D5000) won't signify whether I'm in focus or not.


For my first try, I wished I did better, but hey, it's a learning process =]
