There is nothing embarrassing about taking a great photograph. :)

I've got a $500 64GB iPhone that doesn't take as good of pictures on the Macro level. Now *that* is embarrassing! I'm making a macro lens attachment for my iPhone as soon as the parts come in the mail. Hopefully it will work well and I'll be able to take as nice shots as you have.

Freelancing...It's a little bit embarrassing ...but I use a U$ 89 camera....10 mega pixels,but has an incredible macro.This camera can focus in a distance of 10mm.
Model: Canon Powershot A800

Wonderful macro shots! Can you share what lens, camera (and any other gear) you used for this shot? I'd love to take macros like these.
