Q: What is the difference between macro lense and macro extension tube

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

After so many false starts, and a lot of heartbreak, Sam arrived in the world safe and sound in 2008.

This was taken when he was roughly 3 weeks old. Normally a happy kid, I think I spooked him with the flash, as he turned from a laugh to a full on wail (complete with oh-so-dramatic-mini-me-esque-evil-finger), in a moment.
