Macro and the MP-E 65mm f/2.8

Got a big collection of succulents today. This one was interesting because it looked like a cactus, but it was actually soft instead of prickly. One of the challenges with macro is getting enough depth of field. Normally, I like to shoot pretty shallow, but in this case, I think that f/16 was about right. Still managed to get some blur in the background.
