Macro Love

I'm staying in the mountains at the moment. It's beautiful. We've had a bit of rain but mostly the weather has been glorious. I take my camera out nearly all the time. I'm even carting around my big zoom/macro lens. It's great, because normally I take a lot of sweeping mountain scenes, but this summer I'm determined to get a bit more variety for my 'portfolio'.

I've managed to take some nice macro shots though of tiny flowers and browsing butterflies. Very hard to keep the hands steady without a tripod and to focus on the right part of the plant - such a narrow aperture!

How have I not used my macro lens more?
