Macro faux sounds like some sort of 70's craft project. But it is actually a fake ladybug in a fake green lawn. Macro shooting with a VERY slow, cheapo lens is a bit insane. The miniscule depth of field combined with the impossibly slow autofocus means I am doing more moving of myself than I am the lens. I basically set up the subject, and leaned forward and backward until it was in focus, which I wouldn't advise doing with a killer ear infection.
