My First Impossible Macro Photo

Yep, this is it. My very first IMPOSSIBLE macro photo. Of some kind of bug. A moving bug. Getting this close means a hair's width depth of field, making it nearly impossible to focus, even if the thing you're photographing is a non-living, non-moving thing.

One of the fascinating things about macro photography is that you pick up on things that you can't see with the naked eye, and can't even really see in the viewfinder when you're taking the photo.

I'm hooked. Again.

"Ewwwww!" and "Oooooh!", at the same time.

Wow, that is insane. You would have impressed me with an in focus bug, but you managed to get the bugs texture too. What is this lens attachment thingy you got?
