This was one of the very first photos I took with my macro lens. At the time I had very little clue as to how to edit my photos. That remains the case pretty much but I have learnt a couple of things and so I went back to this shot and managed to lighten the shadows cast as a result of shooting into bright sunlight. I have since last August shot several thousand photos with my macro lens, but this remains a favorite of mine and a reminder of how little beginnings hopefully lead to big endings :-)
