One of my favorite lenses is the macro I got a few years ago. Christmas Eve I was doing my happy dance when I saw the snow just floating down. I hate the cold as much as I love doin’ macro stuff, but the thought of getting another shot at snowflakes was the deal-breaker. I tried without the tripod but after 3 shots, I saw that wasn’t going to work. I set it up, got 4 shots, and then the wind kicked up and blew all the snow off the south side of the truck. Really?? Had to set up again, and got about 70 pics before I called it quits. Some of these aren’t crisp shots, but you can see some good detail in the flake.
