Careful, Or I'll Fall 184/365: Macro/Close-up

My 7 year old daughter looked at this picture and said "Wow, look at all that Bokeh!" I guess she's been listening to me talk. :)


I shot this this morning using my extension tubes as I don't have a macro lens. I used tube 1 and 2. For $8 shipped to me, I think I got my money's worth out of these things.


This is my "Macro/Close-up" entry to the 2009 Photo Challenge hosted by

    Beautiful shot. I don't think I had extension tubes on my wishlist blog post the other day, but they're definitely something I've thought about. And I think you just moved them higher on the list!
