Pretty darn close with the right lens! I haven’t used my 100mm macro lens for awhile. I usually take my flower pictures with the 135mm f/2.0L because I love the soft bokeh (creamy background) I get with it. But yesterday after I watered a few recently planted flowers, I noticed these water drops glistening in the sun. Daisies hold water drops so well – I just had to get out the 100 mm. I should use a tripod with the 100 mm because the focal point is so small, but (1) I hardly ever use my tripod like I “should” and (2) there is no space in the flower bed to set it up. So I had to sqat in the flower bed and avoid stepping on the plants or blocking the sun all the while keeping the camera steady. I got my workout for the day that’s for sure. Enjoy!
